We had some wonderful moments today with a humpback whale calf. It is almost unbelieveable how comfortable the mother whale is with letting her young calf cavort alongside our tour boat. And to think that we were hunting these creatures with a similar sized vessel just over 60 years ago.
Check out this video of the young whale.
