Video Post: Wild Humpback Whales Singing


Hearing wild humpback whale song was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Hear the music for yourself with a special video I filmed:

  • What Humpback Whales Sound Like
  • Back-and-Forth Singing
  • Where to Hear Them

Offshore of Bahia Solano, on Colombia’s Pacific Coast, we had already seen a half-dozen humpbacks huffing and flipping their tales. It was calving season, and the whales were active. It was fun — certainly not my first whale sightings — but nothing could prepare me for when we actually began to hear the whales singing. The sound permeated the water’s surface, and surrounded us. We were all silently in awe in more than 10 minutes, immersed in whale-song. I managed to record it with my GoPro camera — it picked up the sound best underwater. Enjoy.

    I didn’t know it was possible either – but we could hear them loud and clear, all around us. Amazing.

    Wait – you could actually hear them from your boat? How?
