A newcomer in the YouDive TV Team, filmmaker David Trescot offers us lovely underwater images shot in February 2011 in an area about 130 km off Dominican Republic.

A famous site, Silver Banks is a marine sanctuary where humpback whales visit each year to mate and reproduce. Liveaboard diving boats of the Aggressor fleet have a special permit which allows them to offer snorkeling trips with humpback whales.

This video was captured in a single dive, when a massive 15-meter female weighing about 25 tons spent an hour playing with divers.

David Trescot used a Canon EOS 7D equipped with a Tokina 10-17mm lens in an Aquatica case.
