It's only been a week since a trial began allowing people to swim with humpback whales in Western Australia and already the photos and videos being shared are unbelievable.

The four-month trial started in August, allowing for 11 tour operators at Coral Bay and Exmouth to take groups of five into the water with the whales as they make their annual migration south.
