According to Captain Dave: "the edited video was made using a drone hovering in the air above a huge mega-pod of thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California; three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California; and heartwarming close-ups over a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom as an escort whale stands guard nearby, filmed recently in Maui."

He continued: "drones are going to change the way we see the animal world".
