This amazing footage was shot by Captain Dave Anderson, who operates a whale-watching company in Dana Point, and combined with other video of grey whales migrating off of San Clemente, and a mother whale snuggling with her calf in Maui -- all filmed from the vantage point of a drone.
"This is the most beautiful and compelling five minute video I have ever put together. I learned so much about these whales and dolphins from this drone footage that it feels like I have entered a new dimension!" says Captain Dave.
"I have not been this excited about a new technology since we built our underwater viewing pods on our whale watching boat. Drones are going to change how we view the animal world. Wow!"
