6. I wonder if it was luck. I think the whales fully knew what they were doing.

 

They werent hungry for humans. Thanks for posting.

The luck was had by the humans who were photographing the wildlife...

Being in the right spot at the right time.

25. Yes. Unless they usually feed there. Wonder if that is a feeding spot. The whales did not seem to

mind the divers.

9. I'm just in awe of those beautiful beings.

 

I can't imagine experiencing that -- it would change you forever.

There was a good chance of inadvertent injury, just because the whales are so immense and powerful, but I like to think they're smart enough to finesse their movements to avoid hurting the people.

10. All divers pee in their wet suits. Uncontrollable bowel movements are less common.

 

Thanks Peggy, very cool video.

12. That explains sea-monster legends perfectly!

 

I loved how the birds would follow along, presumably enjoying the fish scraps. It's all connected!

18. That would have given me the fright of a lifetime.

One minute you're swimming in murky water and the next this hulking whale rises barely an arm's length from you. Very cool video. Pity the divers didn't catch it happening from beneath the surface.

23. My wife is a marine biologist and I've done marine mammal work

and if you are ever that close to a bait ball (of small feeder fish), you'll want to get away very quickly else you meet their predator. I've taken kayakers right through rolling feeding frenzies of bait fish and then sharks.

You will want to get away from that situation as soon as you are aware of it... or else you'll be whale (or shark) poop in a day or so.
