Rare Footage Captures Huge Humpback Whale Jumping Completely Out Of The Water

We hadn’t really thought about this before we saw this video, but humpback whales almost never fully leave the water when they breach. This video of one doing just that off the coast of South Africa is pretty dang cool.

Per the description on his YouTube video, scuba diver Craig Capehart was shocked by how many whales he and his crew saw while out on the water off the coast of South Africa recently: “An unexpected bonus!”

The particular whale in the video is a 40-ton male humpback whale, Capehart explains. They don’t really ever jump like that: “A very rare event, indeed.”
