October 7, 2012: In this documentary, listeners share the extraordinary experience of being nose to nose with a humpback whale in the wild waters of Southeast Alaska.

From Michael Enright’s introduction:

“In the Pacific Ocean, along the coasts of B.C. and Alaska, moments of connection between humans and whales do happen.  But they are very rare…. and there is no knowing when or where. On a calm day this summer, Jenny Kingsley cruised into Southeast Alaska’s Frederick Sound . . .What began as a lovely day of whale watching turned into something extraordinary,when a humpback turned and headed straight for the ship. . .

Here is Jenny Kingsley and The Whale’s Choice.”
