It’s no secret that whales are the gentle giants of the sea; playfully interacting with humans with a mutually shared curiosity. They have a surprisingly fearless interest when it comes to connecting with us and lead interesting lives.

It is not uncommon for a whale to come to the surface just to check out passing boats. Some have even gone as far as approaching boats in close enough proximity for humans to reach out and touch them. Diver’s have been able to capture both video and pictures of whales interacting with them at close range. Even kayakers have had whales follow them for hours before disappearing beneath the water’s surface.
