curious humpbacks under my zodiac

in antarctica •  22 days ago

When you have humpbacks surrounding your small zodiac, it is nothing short of memorable. Now, when you have humpbacks curiously swimming over to and under your vessel ~ that is heart stopping. This rare, close encounter happened to me a few days ago when I was zodiac cruising an area on the Antarctic peninsula known as Antarctic sound. The region had 30 + humpbacks scattered over a few miles and made watching them from the zodiacs very easy.

It isn't until you have one of these massive gentle giants swim right up to that you truly appreciate just how big they really are and also just how intelligent and curious they are about us, as we are about them

Wow! Your camera takes great underwater detail! That must have been an amazing day!


Cheers! I was using a GoPro for that interaction. It is actually a video that I took but captured a frame for a still shot

Love this. What resolution still can you grab from your go pro?
