Here’s what some have said about Jon and ginclearfilm
“It was an outstanding week of swimming with Humpback whales, hearing their singing, watching mother and baby whales interact, photograph the whales and be photographed with them. All this made for an unforgettable and privileged experience. The trip was well organised, we had dives every day and accommodation and food were great. A wonderful trip.” (George TONGA 2012)
“The trip was magic” (Cath TONGA 2012)
”I wasn’t sure I could get in the cage, it was an internal struggle of fear vs ‘must do, must do’, but Jon made me feel so at ease. The adrenalin rush that followed awesome. I’ll be back!” (Emma, Great Whites SA 2011)
