Intimate encounter with humpback whales today with Bleu Marine Scuba Diving Club in Saint Gilles. 🐋 It was one of my biggest dream to swim with whales and I can now tick it off my bucket list. I’m feeling so blessed to have been welcomed by them in the deep blue. They played hide and seek for about one hour before allowing us to swim with one female and her calf. #humpbackwhale #reunionisland #whales #blessed #gotoreunion

Frame by frame of rarely seen mother and baby (cow/calf) humpback whales aboard East Meets West Whale Watching, Newport Beach. Truly a special encounter watching these magnificent whales interact in the wild as mom teaches her young necessary survival skills! . . . . . . . . . #whale #whales #humpbackwhale #whalewatching #cowcalf #motherandchild #snowflake #natural #naturelover #inthewild #wildandfree #onaboat #oceanlove #boattour #smallgroup #fastandfun #familytime #kidfriendly #nevercrowded #orangecounty #losangeles #lagunabeach #newportbeach #pelagicgear

Humpback whale off the shore of Salisbury Beach! He had to be at most...150 feet off the shoreline. They say there are two, both juveniles, feeding before they migrate. They can come so close because they are still "small." I've seen whales on whale watches but it was so much more to be standing on the sand and seeing one right in front of me. #humpbackwhale #massachusetts #newengland #salisburybeach #whale #ocean

Incredible edit by: @eye.c 🐋 Whilst in America in 2015 for the Summer I and a couple of work friends took a sunny day to go whale watching in #provincetown #capecod #massachusetts We had a very exciting day and saw lots of whales and a few sharks. At one point of the boat trip we came across 3 humpback whales and it was incredible.. certainly an experience that I will never forget! . . . #nakedplanet #lonelyplanet #mountainstones #theglobewanderer #greatnorthcollective #earthcapture #earthfocus #roamtheplanet #agameoftones #letsgosomewhere #livefolk #moodygrams #artofvisuals #wildernessculture #beautifuldestinations #ourplanetdaily #humpbackwhale #shotzdelight #stayandwander #earthpix #exploretocreate #discoverearth #earthofficial #earth #createcommune #theimaged #bevisuallyinspired

What a wonderful surprise we had at the end of this morning's tour - a humpback whale! 🐳We have not been seeing this species of whale very much recently so it was very exciting for both the customers and the crew! There was also a group of white-beaked dolphins swimming around the humpback so we had the added bonus of seeing two different cetacean species at once! 🐬🐋 #reykjaviksailors #reykjavik #whalewatching #humpback #humpbackwhale #dolphins #whitebeakeddolphins #iceland

@michaelfujimori Demonstrators gathered in front of Palace Entertainment in Newport Beach to protest Orca Lolita being in captivity for 47!years in North Americas smallest tank. She was also left alone during Hurricane Irma where it was a miracle she survived. She must be let out of captivity to live out her remaining years to swim free in her natural habitat. @peggy_oki @beccatheshark #captivitykills #hurricaneirma #FreeLolita #miamiseaquarium #seaworld #fuckseaworld #govegan #orca #orcas #whale #whales #savelolita #dolphins #whalewatching #whales #marineland #orca #freelolita #orcas #whale #bmwlife #oceanside #dolphin #seaworld #huskypuppy #ilovemiami #techno #seaworld #humpbackwhale #govegan #veganfoodshare #donttakeourplanetforgranted

We did the long haul yesterday from Airlie Beach to Hervey Bay. I guess now we know why! What an amazing experience seeing these magnificent creatures in real life! Big thanks to the @pacificwhalefoundation 🐋

It may not look like much but look again! T'other day we got the best show on earth with (somewhere between) 3-5 humpback whales in our back garden, splashing around and putting on a song and dance! So of course, out came the binoculars and we were happy campers once more. And to watch it all from our balcony 😎 what. A. Moment. 🐋🐋🐋🐋🐋 thanks chaps. #manly #manlybeach #sydney #whalewatching #humpbackwhale #ocean #binoculars #photography #australia #thisisaustralia #marinelife

one might say that the entirety of the earth celebrated the sunset on this evening. with sunlight streaming through the surface and humpback whales interacting with humans as friends, we swam slowly, suspended in time and water as colorful rays of confetti sprinkled the deep blue sea ✨😌✨

Share in DM if You Like this 💚 A beautiful image of a juvenile #HumpbackWhale coming in for a closer look at One Ocean Diving co founder @oceanramsey in the crystal clear waters of the Kingdom of #Tonga. Just a single generation ago these same whales were hunted as a food source, however, a royal decree outlawed the practice back in 1978. Since then this small pacific island has gained popularity as a destination for whale watching and interactions with one study estimating the value of the whales in excess of USD$700,000 as a tourist attraction (Orams 2010) proving these whales are #WorthMoreAlive. Being personally inspected by a playful humpback whale that is possibly seeing a human for the first time in its life can leave a lasting impression, but the tendency of this industry to focus mainly on mothers and calfs has raised concerns for potential to impact on the subpopulation's breeding success and recovery. Thankfully there are a limited number of licenses, strict rules and regulations in place that guide operators activities to minimize any potential impact and ensure long term sustainability. New training programs for guides based on empirical research have improved local knowledge, engagement and responsibility regarding the role of the guide and #ecotourism from a local to global perspective, and elicited a sense of national pride in leading the way for best practice in whale ecotourism in the South Pacific region (Walker & Weiler 2016). Commercial whaling dramatically reduced populations of whales similar to the degree of which sharks are being exploited today. It was only when whales were recognized as crucial natural resources and valued components of a healthy ecosystem that international frameworks for their protection and conservation were established. Every single baby whale seen today is a living reminder that humans have the capacity to change their ways and give wildlife we share the planet with the chance to recover. #SpeakUpForNature #ForFutureGenerations #OfAllSpecies 🐢🐋🐬🦈 Post by @blakethompsonphoto Photo by @oceanramsey #shotoniphone using the @aquatech_imagingsolutions #AxisGo water housing. ⠀ Plan to buy Marine shirt?
