IMAX® Film

Humpback Whales

Available only to schools as part of a Museum field trip.

An extraordinary journey into the hidden world of nature's most awe-inspiring marine mammal, Humpback Whales takes you to Alaska, Hawaii, and the Kingdom of Tonga for a close-up look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play, and care for their young.

Captured with IMAX® cameras, and found in every ocean on Earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a steady recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.

Humpback Whales is a MacGillivray Freeman film presented by Pacific Life.
