Freediving with a sperm whale at Austrevåg in Øygarden, Bergen. The Whale was 13 meters long and weighed in at about 20 tons. Its hard to put words to this experience, the feeling of being so close to a wild animal of that size and at several occations having eye contact with it, is simply breathtaking and humbling. You could see it contemplating our presence in the water... calm and curious as it made its way towards us and stopped just feet away from us several times. The water was pretty murky, as you can see, so we were lucky to get that close to the whale to get some decent shots with the GoPro cams. Njoy!! :)
