Thanks to Tom Conlin & the crews of Aquatic Adventures and the M/V Turks & Caicos Explorer II
we spent more than 7 hours in the water with this beautiful humpback calf and its mother on the Silver Bank in the Caribbean Sea. A fellow traveler nicknamed the young whale Reiki, The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Thanks for the great memories of this experience Estela!

And a researcher friend tells us that this whale is from Newfoundland (ID'd from markings on its tail fluke). Likely she is at home feeding with Reiki as you watch this film...having made the long journey back to Canada about a month ago.
