Patrick and the Whale


For twenty years, Patrick Dykstra has dedicated his life to traveling the globe, following and diving with whales. Over the years, Pat has learnt how whales see and hear, how they perceive other creatures in the water and how they behave at close quarters. He has a finely tuned sense and knows how to act when within touching distance of a whale – what to do, what not to do and when. This allows him to consistently get closer than anyone else alive – a truly unique skill.
