Craig Capeheart was sitting in an inflatable boat off the coast of Mbotyi in South Africa when he captured the exact moment a 40-ton whale jumped completely out of the water and back into the ocean. It apparently didn’t matter how much this animal weights because it was just as graceful.
“It seems that never before has a recording been made of an adult humpback whale leaping entirely out of the water! A very rare event, indeed,” Craig shared on a caption, right next to the video. He claims that dolphins and great white sharks have been seen jumping out of the water but there were no recordings of a humpback whale doing so, that is of course, until now!
