Moorea, Society Islands South Pacific
Video of swimming with two Humpback whales. Getting close was absolutely exhilarating and as the second whale in the video does a barrel roll and we were eye to eye for moment. So cool! Despite being 40' long and weighing 25 tons these creatures move with incredible grace and precision.
In the video a clip below I added a few seconds of swimming with large Manta... this was a different day, but a nice way to fill out this short video clip. Maybe someday when we get some good Internet we can upload all the HD original video and high res photos we have aboard.
