Patrick Dykstra has dedicated his life to following and diving with whales. Over the past 20 years, he has learned 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 of how to act when within touching distance of a whale. In 2019, Patrick experienced a life-changing event when he had a close encounter with a female sperm whale.
