Some years ago, my assistant and I found ourselves only a few hundred meters from the shore off the coast near Cape Town, South Africa. Hundreds of humpback whales surrounded us. We had been in the water for an hour already, and I was getting some great footage. The whales were curious, and I had a sense they had never seen divers before.
