In the summer of 2017, Nan, accompanied by a vessel of fellow researchers, had taken to the sea for a routine swim. She was being watched carefully by the crew so, at least in Nan’s mind, perhaps nothing out of the ordinary would take place. How wrong she would be. Her waterproof camera documented a massive humpback – likely weighing over 20 tons and measuring more than 50 meters from nose to tail – began swimming right toward her. She was fully aware that this was not normal whale behavior.
