The 5 best videos of whales

1. Whales almost swallow divers whole

This is a close call! Filmed off the coast of central California, two divers are almost swallowed – by accident – by a couple of humpback whales.


2. Face to face with A sperm whale

Filmed by Howard Hall, DIVE's World Editor Douglas Seifert gets up close to a sperm whale in Dominica.


3. Behind the photo

National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry describes coming face-to-face with a southern right whale – and capturing a fantastic shot.


4. A Grateful whale

Some snorkellers free a whale from entanglement in fishing net – and it shows its appreciation with an incredible acrobatic display.


5. Orcas surf a bow wave

Okay, so they're technically not whales. But this is a great video of killer whales riding a bow wave of a boat in La Paz, Mexico.
