Humpback Whales 3D

IMAX® Theatre

February 13, 2015 - February 20, 2016

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

Captured for the first time with IMAX® 3D 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 what makes humpbacks the most acrobatic of all whales, why only the males sing, and why these intelligent 50-foot, 48-ton animals migrate more than 6,000 miles every year.

Fun Facts

  • A whale's tail fluke is like a fingerprint– no two are alike.
  • Averaging 55 feet long, the female humpback whale is longer than a school bus.
  • Humpback whales are world travelers. They migrate thousands of miles each year, more than any other mammal.

You can help humpback whales by supporting organizations that protect whale habitats, eating sustainable seafood, and learning more about these amazing mammals.
