Photo: Mommy and calf no.1 of the day (Uatolu #23 of 2011). They were accompanied by a half-white escort. They're huge and made me feel so small and insignificant... The water was not cold. The condition was getting much better than last week. The viz was great but super cloudy with shower.. I still struggled with my settings as there was absolute no chance to adjust anything once down there with them cos they moved in whale speed!!! All in all it was a super great day to kick off the humpie-hug trip!
Photo: Despite the shitty weather we had today, we found a super playful baby and a oh-no-not-so-interested mom. We're sitting in the water waiting for something to happen (Read : waiting for Tony's call to get out of the raging ocean) then I looked down and saw them rising from the deep to check us out! Then they swam away to my left and the baby was saying bubbye by showing her white belly! Awesome encounter!
Photo: This baby was huge and really playful. She just showed us her belly! — at Vava'u, Tonga.
Photo: It was our Day 5 in Vava'u water. We almost had the roughest day of all time as we had zero chances to swim with whales. Then we were about to give up. Actually we did and moved on to snorkel in the cave. Meki yelled as he spotted something from the far - a male.. no no not just one.. Once we're there, there were 5 of them but only these 2 sticked around. They were male and female pair who didn't mind us, human being in a part of their courtship.. It was a super romantic love song underwater with lots of fun and action-pack.   This white belly was a male - adorable playful male :) I'll post more photo from this day event! Unforgettable experience and Tony scored this encounter 10 out of 10 based on how lucky we were on the day!!!
Photo: Courting Yin Yang pair - we swam with them for at least 40 mins. Tony (or Dan) said they must have thought of us, human as retarded dolphins trying to keep up with them...
