There’s nothing quite like the awe-inspiring experience of diving alongside some of the world’s biggest creatures. Whether it’s making eye contact with a humpback whale, watching an oceanic manta ray perform a majestic dance for you or the thrill of a shark feed with the gentle giants gliding around you in every direction, big animals are one of the main reasons many people dive.
