This portrait of a family of Humpback whales shows the mother and calf with an escort just off to the side. These whales were slowly tracking on there way to somewhere. We had a brief 15 minute encounter and the whales circled us several times, and eventually decided we were not a threat and came very close on their final pass. If you have thought about swimming with whales, contact me ASAP as there some exciting things happening.
Witnessing this kind of behavior is incredible. This will be one of many whale portraits on display at the Waterfront Restaurant in Maui, when it opens in a few weeks.
