Were you filming with scuba or just snorkel?

Amazing. Thanks for sharing this great video.
3.20 to 3.25 is stunning the way the light plays on the baby whale

Are you questioning my authority on light refraction through dome ports and lenses at depth in Tongan waters Davide?

You had me from the opening shot, the snorkeler in the upper left seemed infinitesimal; it made for a magnificant composition. However, I am now discouraged because I could never afford a Red One or anything that is in that price category. Just can't compete with such quality. Great shots all around.
