Mind-blowing Footage of an Enormous Humpback Whale Breaching Out of the Sea Close to a Fishing Boat

It is mind-blowing knowing about the enormous creatures that live in the aquatic world, and it’s even more amazing seeing them when they resurface, and realizing how tiny you are in comparison to them. We had the chance to witness this once again, when a humpback whale was captured breaching the sea right next to a fishing boat.

The videos and pictures were provided by Douglas Croft, a 60-year-old, who was in the boat, and whale watcher Kate Cummings. The footage was captured in Monterey Bay, California, which is a popular whale-watching spot, but still, no one was expecting the largest sea mammal to come this close to the surface.

This happened during the Salmon season when humpbacks come to feed themselves for the summer, and there were a lot of fishing boats in the bay.  Douglas Croft who witnessed the breach of this giant humpback leaping out of the depths was in shock.

“It was quite exciting! Salmon season coincides with the time when humpbacks are returning to Monterey Bay to feed for the summer, and there were hundreds of boats on the bay fishing.

This whale had breached a couple of times before this, and many times they’ll just keep doing it. I went below deck to shoot from a porthole close to the waterline. That’s what gives this amazing perspective of looking up at the whale.

That the breach was directly behind the fishing boat really shows the size. Since the boat is closer, it should look bigger, but the whale is enormous! If I’d been the fisherman, I’d probably need some new underwear,” said Croft.

Ms. Cummings managed to get a video recording of this magnificent show. “It was fun capturing this video. The whale had already breached multiple times much further away from the fisherman.

But sometimes when whales breach multiple times, they’re also heading a specific direction when they’re underwater building momentum for the next breach,” said Kate. “I figured the next breach would be around the fisherman because the whale was heading that way and sure enough! Though I didn’t expect the whale and the boat to line up so perfectly.”

Same Crocodile, Same Place 15 Years Apart- Steve Irwin’s Son Recreates His Father’s Most Iconic Photo

We are living in a world that nothing is guaranteed forever. due to extreme pollution and global warming and harmful thing happening the earth is becoming a big mess. Not only for humans but also for animals. They have been massively going on extinct and unprotected by human harm and evilness.

Nonetheless, the rates of extinction that are currently taking place are actually comparable to the rates that took place when dinosaurs were wiped off of the face of the planet.

However, there is still a ray of hope when it comes to people who actually care about other beings except themselves.

I bet Everyone knows the late, great Steve Irwin. He left behind an incredible legacy. He was a crocodile hunter with a heart of gold. Now, his loved ones are doing their best to carry on the tradition. His children Robert and Bindi have continued their conservation efforts. Irwin’s wife Terri is also heavily involved.

When we remember steve we see that all he ever wanted was that all the animals in the Australian Zoo where he used to work to be treated with the utmost respect. If these animals are not given the chance to hunt down moving prey, they are more likely to become extinct. That’s why the efforts of trained handlers are important. Without their assistance, the crocodiles are unable to feed in the proper manner.

His son Murray made a recreation photo like his father did but 15 years after a very iconic photo of his father feeding the same crocodile. Now, Robert is the one who is responsible for his welfare. The Instagram post went viral and was liked by every animal lover out there. And Robert hopes he can shed light to everyone about animal rights welfare.
