There’s nowhere else in the world where dwarf minkes congregate like they do on the GBR – and certainly nowhere else in the world where you can swim with them. And there’s definitely nothing else in the world quite like swimming eye to eye with them, says Inger Vandyke. “From the moment you make eye contact,” she says, “you switch from being in your world to being completely immersed in theirs. Swimming alongside them is a pivotal life experience, something that stays in your memory forever.” See 3-night ‘Cod Hole’ expedition with Spirit Of Freedom.
