    $550.00$1,750.00
    The whale shark is the largest known fish species in our oceans today. It is a slow-moving filter feeding shark, one of only three species of sharks to filter feed. Whale sharks are found in tropical waters and live in the open sea. The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.50 ft). They have a lifespan of approximately 70 years. They are listed on the IUCN red list as a vulnerable species. Every spring the coral spawning brings their migration to Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia where they can spend up to 5 months feeding on plankton. Ningaloo attracts individuals 4m to 10 m in length and it is possible to swim with these majestic beautiful fish through licensed operators. - photo by 2013©Tom Balks/TomBalks.com, all right reserved.

  • Who’s Watching Who

    $550.00$1,750.00
    Swimming with Humpback Whales in Vava’u in the northern islands of Tonga is the place to be. Between August to October you will likely see a calf like this one. The calf can be so curious, coming up to eye ball you and then dive back down to see mum, surfacing 4-6 times before you see the mother surface to breathe. The calf consumes around 200+ litres of milk per day, this ensures the calf puts on weight quickly for its long migration back to Antarctica. For the next 12 months the calf will stay by its mother side, becoming a juvenile whale, it will be heading off to make its own life. - photo by 2014©Tom Balks/TomBalks.com, all right reserved.
