This is the adorable moment between a giant humpback whale and a woman who shared a once-in-a-lifetime encounter. All have been caught on film, and the footage once again shows that these sea creatures are brilliant. Despite being one of the largest animals on Earth, humpback whales are not gentle giants.
Although they are fascinating, it is nearly impossible to encounter those sea giants closely. After all, there is a place on this planet where humans can easily go into the water with them. Every year, hundreds of humpback whales gather in Tonga to give birth. Clever whales have chosen this Polynesian island for thousands of years as their favorite breeding place because of the peaceful water and no predators for their babies.
While people can get close enough to the whales, here are some firm rules about approaching them. However, mostly out of curiosity, giant animals sometimes approach divers. That’s what recently happened to this fortunate woman. As she was swimming near the surface of the water, a friendly whale approached her from the depths with the gentlest of intentions on her mind.
Apparently, the playful creature was asking for a belly rub because she rolled on her back a few times while swimming very close to the woman. Naturally, it was an experience she would never forget. The diver’s screams of joy as the encounter was unlikely to end, says it all.
