Divers Surprised by an Encounter with a Humpback Whale

In this video from 2011, divers first heard the whale’s distinctive song and then cheered when they caught sight of a humpback whale swimming past them. PetaPixel has more of the story.

westh2o and his friends were diving at around 40 to 75 feet underwater at Moorea,? French Polynesia, about 9 miles northwest of Tahiti. One of his best friends from Germany was actually the one capturing photographs and footage on the dive (westh2o is one of the other divers around the cameraman).
