SWAM WITH TIGER SHARKS TODAY. 💙🦈✨ SWAM WITH WHALES YESTERDAY. 💙🐋✨ .
Heart expansion times a million.
Being in the water with these creatures has been fabric of my dreams for decades. The first time my eyes fell upon a tiger shark I wept. Every puff from the blow holes of humpbacks makes me gasp. Witnessing these legendary beings in the wild, healthy & thriving, feels like my fantastical imagination has merged with my reality. Being in the water with tiger sharks, a heart full of love & complete respect as they navigate their domain, changing course with quick agility & humbling speed. The humpbacks. My mama’s favourite. Snorkelling the reef when a big mama surfaced so near us when we looked in her direction we saw her calf, pale white & wondrous, flexing her new little form through the blue.
Neither of these encounters were planned. The ocean eco-system here is healthy and vibrant. The marine life is thriving and safe in these waters. As a visitor, my heart swells with love and respect. I am grateful for the scientists & conservationists working hard to keep these waters protected & the creatures safe.
Many of these amazing animals migrate beyond the bounds of this pristine reef and surrounding regulated waters. Please always support legitimate conservation based tourism if you seek marine animal encounters. There are many tat claim to be “eco,” but whose main priority is to collect your money & line their pockets. We must do our research and support sustainable business.
I feel grateful to have had two days of ocean adventure, the first sunny, non-windy days in weeks & we scored. I call it magic-manifesting. I call it karma for hard work & a worked heart. I am FILLED UP by these mermaid swims with humpback whales, manta rays, tiger sharks, reef sharks, loggerhead turtles, green turtles, parrot fish, so many fish! benthic rays, healthy coral, and dear human friends. Humbled. In awe. Full of respect. .
