A young whale took advantage of low marine traffic and ventured along Wellington’s Aotea Quay on April 28.
In footage shared to his Instagram account, local Jacob Blaikie filmed the calf as it swam by.
“When the humans are away, the animals come to play!” Blaikie wrote in his post.
New Zealand media reported the whale as being a juvenile humpback. Credit: Jacob Blaikie via Storyful
