This is the amazing moment a group of snorkelers experiences a close encounter with a baby humpback whale.

The footage, captured on January 22 off the coast of Costa Rica, shows the snorkelers swimming right next to the baby whale as it surfaces.

One of the snorkelers can be seen touching the whale before it swims back into the ocean.

Writes the filmer: ''We had the privilege of snorkeling with a baby humpback whale.

''He kept coming so close to us and swam right up to one of our divers, Rob.

''He gently pushed it away and said it was really soft.

''We never saw the mother or the escorts but I can assure you that they were there close by and keeping an eye on that youngster.

''In all the twenty years that I have been diving in the Costa Rica Gulf of Papagayo I have never had this sort of experience before.

''I saw into the eye of a whale and he looked deep into my soul and I was blessed.''
