Having a whale of a time! Incredible pictures of divers swimming alongside whales
Talk about having a whale of a time! These incredible snaps show the moment lucky divers got up close and personal with massive whales, as they swam alongside the majestic mammals.
Peter Allinson, from Maryland, US, was on holiday with his family in the Dominican Republic when he caught the amazing whales on camera in the crystal-clear ocean.
The divers look tiny in comparison to the whopping whales – but far from being scary, the whales seemed to enjoy the interaction as the divers stroked the whales and playfully headbutted them.
Peter’s son Marc was swimming alongside the sperm whales, who look like they are smiling as they mingle playfully with the divers.
Peter said: “It was an awesome experience.
“I felt so lucky I was able to capture this, it was a very special moment.”
