One of the videos I took on Tuesday, to show how close they were getting!

The wake at the beginning of the vid is from when they popped up right underneath us 🌊

And I kept the sound on, despite the bits of chatter, so you can hear that distinctive blow 💨

Whale Shark Sighting West Palm Beach (4/9/17 )

At the end of our dive on the dive site known as “The Trench” off of West Palm Beach, Florida we had the encounter of a lifetime! 

My wife, Brittany, our niece Addie, and our Dive Guide Craig Buss from Pura Vida Divers were the last 4 divers in the water ascending from approximately 60’. This whale shark graced us with its presence for approximately 1 minute, in approximately 30 feet of water, surrounded by nearly 100 remora’s and 20+ cobia’s.

“This video depicts a very rare interaction between sperm whales and an adult bottlenose dolphin with a spinal malformation (i.e. scoliosis). This represents the first time this type of non-agonistic (friendly) interaction has been recorded for sperm whales.” - Alexander Wilson

Why do whales sing?

Communicating underwater is challenging. Light and odors don’t travel well, but sound moves about four times faster in water than in air — which means marine mammals often use sounds to communicate. The most famous of these underwater vocalizations is undoubtedly the whale song.

Stephanie Sardelis decodes the evocative melodies composed by the world’s largest mammals.
