Fellowship of the Whales

10PM Wed., 7/13 on CPTV (Check Listings)

This is the story of the first year in a humpback whale’s life as she learns lessons from her mother. Together, they make the long journey from her birthplace in the subtropical waters in Hawaii to summer feeding grounds in the cold seas off Alaska’s southeast coast. The youngster will meet dangerous orcas and sharks and playful dolphins and seals. She will learn to use her flippers and tail to announce herself and to communicate with other whales. By the time mother and offspring return to Hawaii for the winter, the young humpback will be ready to set out on her own and find her own place in the community of whales.
