That moment when an orca descends underwater towards you and your boat; its sleek and powerful body curving like a bow, dorsal fin slicing through the midnight-dark waters in northern Norway. That is when you place your snorkel in your mouth, grab an underwater camera and slip over the edge of the zodiac. Your gut tells you that you might be foolish - that you might be taking your life in your hands when you decide to meet this great species face to face, but rationale is overrated when you put your trust and faith in the most intelligent top predator on this planet. And then you realize that you have taken your life in your hands, but not in the way you thought, because being in the water next to an orca changes something inside of you 🖤

When enjoying yourself in the sea, please be kind and help protect nature. Do not touch the corals as this can kill them. Take care not to step or stand on coral rocks and watch out where your feet and fins are so they don’t accidentally kick the corals.. Do not chase, tease or frighten reef animals. Do not feed reef fish as this can disturb the balance in the marine ecosystem. Do not leave anything behind in the sea and take nothing from the sea home with you except photographs and memories.
