A pair of Humpback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) both bring their tails out of the water as they prepare for a dive in front of the Wild Coast coastline near Port St Johns in South Africa.
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.
