This amazing video shows a once in a lifetime event for a lucky whale watcher who was lucky enough to pet a baby grey whale.
Sofia Isaac filmed the touching moment the inquisitive calf swam up to her boat to say ‘hello’.
Unafraid, Sofia reached out to pet the playful whale which appears to enjoy the attention.
The video was taken at a whale breeding ground in Ojo de Liebre, Baja, California, USA.
Sofia, from Guadalajara, Mexico, said: “The video shows a baby grey whale being curious. Yes, you are able to touch them here at the nursery.
“The mother whale was behind the baby at all times protecting him. This is my meaning of happiness and enjoying the present.”
