The Whale Whisperer showcases the inspiring relationship between whale lover Vicki Neville and the humpback whales that come to play and socialise in a unique bay off the coast of Queensland Australia.
Vicki interacts with the whale’s as they display their repertoire of social play, from peduncle slapping and spy hopping to phenomenal breeches, where whales 11 times the size of an elephant launch themselves skywards, only to crash back down onto the waves with an enormous splash.
They are at once highly intelligent, master navigators as they swim between the Antarctic and the tropics every year, and extraordinarily graceful, especially given their massive size.
Never before seen behaviours have been documented by a team of 5 cinematographers over the three month whale season in Hervey Bay, all captured in glorious 4K format.
Whales like you have never seen them before, interacting with professional whale guide Vicki Neville in a 50 minute special that will leave viewers in awe.
