Hi There, I am an underwater photographer and my husband is a boat captain and dive instructor. We live in Hawaii and are coming on April 10th for a week. Is it legal to get in the water with the whales there? We swim with dolphins all the time, they come into the bay below our Ohana. I have taken photos of Humpbacks underwater and it is my dream to photograph a sperm whale. I also photograph sharks and pictures for tourists here of their dolphin swims. Mahalo, Natasha
