7 photos of whales and dolphins from a retirement spent sailing the world’s oceans

Christopher Swann has been running whale watching tours for more than 23 years. Having brought his guests to such whale watching hot spots as Hebrides and the Sea of Cortes, he has retired and is now “sailing away around the world” exploring the seas and looking for his beloved whales and dolphins.

In a collection of photos taken both above and below the surface of the water, he shares some of the encounters that he has had with marine mammals. He said in an interview, “To see animals so huge yet so graceful, so at ease and at one with their surroundings, is exquisite.”
