A Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) swims along hilly shoreline of the Wild Coast of South Africa not far from Port St Johns.
These huge whales can be seen each year in this area in the June and July time frame in conjunction with the Sardine Run, as they migrate north from their feeding season in Antartica towards Mozambique.
These whales can grown to upwards of 52 feet and weigh as much as 50 tons. They are also responsible for majority of the more beautiful the 'whale songs' that have become synomous with the general public.
