Not everyone can say they’ve been face to face with a fully grown humpback whale, but this diver has a story to tell.
The snorkeler was diving to see the corals and the sea life, when she noticed a huge shadow coming towards her.
She saw the humpback whale swimming directly at her and realized something wasn’t normal. Then she felt the whale nudging her higher and higher, almost as if the whale wanted to get her out of the water, while trying to hide her under her enormous fin.
She wasn’t clear what was happening at first, but after the encounter, the crew realized that the whale was protecting her from some nearby sharks.
