"Thus I Give Up The Spear" by Phil Halper

Duration: 01:10


"Thus I give up the spear" is the last thing said by Ahab in the novel Moby Dick and Phil Halper empathises believing it marks "our transition from hunting whales to realising we can simply admire these magnificent animals."

Filmed over many trips, Phil swam with humpback and sperm whales off the coast of the Dominican Republic, while venturing to Mexico to film a group of grey whales also known as the Friendly Whales of San Ignacio.
