This video was shot onboard the Pacific Whale Foundation's Ocean Voyager.
Initially we encountered a group of Pantropical Spotted Dolphins in the Auau Channel, between Maui and Lanai.
Suddenly a Humpback Whale surfaced amongst the dolphins.
Capt. Chris put the boat in neutral and we were soon surrounded by 3 Humpback Whales!
The smallest whale, which we believe was a sub adult female, surfaced right next to the boat several times. She appeared to be covered in old cookie cutter shark bite marks.
The encounter lasted 40mins and the guests on board were so ecstatic!

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
