“We never saw the mother or the escorts but I can assure you that they were there… close by and keeping an eye on that youngster. In all the twenty years that I have been diving in the Costa Rica Gulf of Papagayo, I have never had this sort of experience before…BLESSED!

“I saw into the eye of a whale and he looked deep into my soul and I was blessed! I still can’t believe the experience we all had. Here is the video of the young humpback whale approaching our diver to have a better look and Rob actually … gently pushed it away. He said it was really soft,” was Bob’s experience.
