Here’s a feel-good flick for your Saturday; featuring a clan of whales and dolphins sharing a lineup with a small pack of surfers.
The video was captured in WA, a region well known for its thriving marine life and the location of many surfer/ animal encounters, however, it’s rare for a humpback to come in this close to shore as filmmaker Alasdair Evans, who captured the footage, explains:
“On this day the dolphins were playing around in the waves for a while so I decided to throw my drone up and capture the dolphins from the sky. To my surprise a large shadow appeared, which turned out to be a humpback whale. At this spot along the coast we often see humpbacks breaching out to see but rarely in this close to the surfers and waves. The whale and dolphins seemed to have a connection and were happy interacting with each other inside the break. This allowed a few surfers to experience some magical moments with the large mammal.”
