Imagine staring into the eye of a 210-ton, 100-foot long, blue whale. For National Geographic photographer Charles “Flip” Nicklin this is practically a lifelong privilege. From Alaska to Antarctica, Maui to Mexico, Nicklen has spent the last 40 years traveling in the wake of whales and has more than 5,500 dives under his belt. His ability to free dive to depths of nearly 100 feet – leaving behind his oxygen tank – allows him to swim near enough to record whale behavior without interrupting it.

Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading whale photographers, Nicklin’s majestic images and audio tracks of singing whales have appeared in numerous National Geographic publications and television specials.

Hear Nicklin’s stories of adventure swimming alongside these awe-inspiring creatures, and discover what makes them among the most magical and mysterious animals on earth.
