The pair additionally took photographs with whale sharks within the Philippines, the place the younger collect to feed on plankton.

David mentioned: ‘My spouse Alice has a tremendous reference to whales that enables her to share unimaginable moments underwater with these light giants.

‘Freediving is actually taking one large breath on the floor earlier than diving down and interacting with the animals – typically for over a minute and sometimes at depths of as much as 15 meters.

‘Despite the scale of those animals, and the uncooked energy that they’ve, there’s almost a way of full serenity and calm when swimming alongside them.

‘They are very conscious of people within the water and I get the sense that they’re as curious of us as we’re of them – significantly the younger calves.’
