Closest Whale Encounters

It seems that as every year goes by Humpback whales are slowly regaining their trust in humans despite nearly being forced to extinction by them. In the last few years in particular some of the bolder and more curious Tongan Humpbacks appear very comfortable in the close presence of humans. They are truly gentle giants and much more nimble in the water than many would believe. Humpbacks have an incredible ability to communicate curiosity, intelligence and friendship with that huge eye!
