Behold one of natures gentlest giants: the humpback whale! This one came to say hello no more than six feet away from our boat. The curiosity of the whales were peaked by the whale watching boats and this one swam right up within a couple feet of our boat. The precursor to this video included a fishy spray from this beauty's blowhole all over those of us close enough to look into her eye. So humbled by this experience. Mahalo to Tasman Venture for their knowledgable crew and for respecting these gentle giants.
