From late December to early May, humpback whales call Hawaii home. However, it is rare that the whales come this close to shore. "I have never seen whales surfing on the north shore and everyone I have spoke to about it says it's a first as well," said Gray.

Whale Watching by Drone Offers Stunning, Rare View of Mother Humpback and Calf: VIDEO

Whales

Justin Edwards, a whale enthusiast with a RC drone, captured some beautiful footage of humpback whales on February 14 off the coast of Maui near Kihei, including a mother playing with her calf.

Writes Edwards: "I love filming from my drone and I am always looking for things to film so whales seemed like a great subject.  I also wanted to show my two young boys what a whale was like because they would normally only see them blowing air from a long way away - Now they know how big and majestic these creatures are!"

Seaworld

Gabriela Cowperthwaite's documentary Blackfish follows Tilikum, the orca responsible for three deaths while in captivity, including the 2010 death of Dawn Brancheau, a 40-year-old trainer at SeaWorld, which made headlines around the world. It looks devastating to an entertainment industry bent on putting these creatures in tiny pools, and should be.

The documentary premiered at Sundance and is due for theatrical release next month.
