I was fortunate to take the trip of a lifetime and headed to Tonga. This is where the Humpback whales go to birth their baby calves. Then they hangout while the young ones grow and get strong enough to migrate to Antartica. This calf is 2-4 weeks old and was so curious. She kept swimming up to me and making complete eye contact. This was 4-5 feet from this young gentle giant.

For 2018 I will be hosting 3 one week long tours. Come and experience the trip of a life time.

Awesome shot! I've always wanted to see a baby up close. We lived on Maui for eight years and saw them as they came through both to their winter waters and back again on their summer. They are amazing creatures.
