Amazing footage shows a baby humpback whale cuddling with her mom.

A pod of humpback whales swimming off the coast of Tonga, a cluster of Polynesian islands, was spotted by a drone camera operated by underwater cameraman Darren Rice.

And it only gets better when a mother whale and her calf are spotted.

Humpbacks are relatively social animals, and a calf will spent about one year with its mother before becoming independent.

Mothers have been known to aggressively protect their babies from predators or other male whales who try to mate.

At one point, the calf tries to hitch a ride from mom — but promptly rolls right off.
