Cool vid. I haven't seen it before. Thanks.

If I were to anthropomorphize the whale's behavior I'd say it appeared to be curious about these floating critters. It intentionally breathed before coming into contact, then purposely dove deep enough to swim underneath the people.

I believe this is how all intelligent animals would behave.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
