One of the most amazing moments of my life: being so close to this juvenile humpback whale, in Bermuda, that I was literally leaning over the railings of the boat and looking straight down at it.
There was no stress, no following: they actually turned the engine off at a distance from this juvenile & mother pair, and they came to us. The mother kept a slight distance, but the baby seemed curious, and kept hanging out at the side of the boat, just like this, and swimming around and under the boat.
I was completely blown away and kept thinking, “how on earth is this real?”
