Mo'orea - Allie Kelley

Sunset Spins

In a spectacular display of interaction, this whale embraced the presence of the few divers in the water and spent several minutes spinning in the light of the setting sun. Unlike other encounters, where whales would identify others, and reroute their path in a clear direction, this lone whale continued to enjoy the wash of the waves against its massive body. The humpback stretched and spun, bringing movement to each of her fins and exercising her tale in all directions.
