Okay..now THAT was close! I know humpback whales are very good mothers but they can be a tad bit on the over-protective side when it comes to their babies. The mothers can be quite fierce if they think their baby is being threatened so you'd feel it a lot more if that were the case. In this incident, it was more likely a subtle hint that you've invaded their personal "bubble".

It must have been amazing to be so close to the whales though!

That was a clear message from Mama to the diver to back off. No doubt about it - she knew exactly what she was doing. He's lucky.

This is why there is a Marine Mammal Protection Act in the United States.
