Humpback Whale Breach Series, Oahu Hawaii, Whale Watching

Whale Breach! Everyone’s favorite! A powerful acrobatic display where the humpback uses its tail to launch itself out of the water. With just a few pumps of its tail, the humpback can propel its entire body into the air, landing back onto the surface with a resounding splash. The purpose of this spectacular behavior is still unknown. Some say they serve as a form of communication – or maybe just a form of playful activity for the humpback.
