For most people spending time in Tonga swimming alongside a sixteen metre long, forty ton whales is a dream come true. For some it is a nightmare! For Scott Portelli that is another day in the office.

Take time with us to learn about Scott on this episode of the podcast. Scott is a world renowned wildlife photographer with multiple awards and accolades. But he doesnt stop there!

It has taken Scott the better part of his career to understand how to read Whale behaviour and learn how to best interact with the whales with the aim to create organic interactions and build familiarity.

In this episode we discuss the dangers of interacting with humpbacks in light of the recent injuries sustained by tourists swimming with whales in Ningaloo.

Scott's early career and interests
Interacting with Whales and the dangers of being around such large megafauna
