Overview

Four years ago, as Andrew Stevenson and his daughter Elsa watched a humpback launch itself out of the water off a Bermudan beach, she asked the question, “Why does a whale breach?”

 

This was the beginning of an interesting and challenging project to film the whales underwater, fifteen miles off shore, in the middle of their migratory crossings. Stevenson’s unique, close-up photographs, video footage, and audio recordings have provided remarkable new evidence of the whales’ migratory lives in the waters around Bermuda, their breeding grounds in the Caribbean and their feeding grounds off the coast of Canada.

Stevenson’s award-winning documentary film and his book, Whale Song are the astonishing result of his work with the humpback whales and serve as a valued addition to what we know about these mysterious and majestic animals.
