    Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play and take care of their young—captured for the first time with IMAX 3D cameras. Found in every ocean on Earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow, albeit remarkable recovery.

    Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs and why these intelligent, 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.

    “Just one look in their eye will tell you, we have much more to learn about their world.”
