Humpback whale eye to eye – snorkeling at Guinjata Dive Centre

Humpback whales!

During Mozambican winter season we see them every day, sprouting, breaching, playing, gently surfacing.
Often mothers and calfs of the humpbacks together.

Yes, we usually come even closer during our Ocean Safaris.

But what happened yesterday is rare even for us:

Having this humpback whale and its calf passing by while snorkeling in the bay during an Ocean Safari of Guinjata Dive Centre.
Both humpbacks passing our snorkelers at arm length and with gentle moves. Inquisitive eyes of both, humpback mother and humpback calf.
