whales4Not very many people get close up to creatures of the deep sea. The best most folks can hope for is watching them from afar at Disney World. One brave young couple decided to go for a swim off the Gold Coast in Australia, known for its whale sightings, and ended up experiencing the opportunity of a lifetime. They recorded it on video, below.

That is a humpback whale and her calf playing with them. Normally whales don’t stick around humans for long, so this was a rare treat that they wanted to play with them for so long. Note how big the whale’s fins are when she slaps them on the water. That was one brave couple!
