In the warm protected waters of the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, two thirds of the North Pacific humpback whale population come to compete and mate. In this short film, Cousteau divers use rebreathers to quietly film a pod of humpback whales. Their intimate experience is featured in "America's Underwater Treasures," a two-hour program and part of the series, Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Adventures shown on PBS. The crew anticipated their enormous size, but not the grace of their underwater ballet. Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean Adventures is a co-production between Ocean Futures Society and KQED
