Humpback Calf and Mother

A Humpback calf swims on the surface alongside our chase boat. The aquamarine shadow below the calf is its mother. During this nursing time on the Silver Bank the mother is never more than a few yards away from her calf.

Background from left: Turks & Caicos Explorer, Turks & Caicos Aggressor (our ship), the wreck of the Polyxeni, and a chase boat from Explorer.
