Pod Of 60 Humpback Whales Spotted In Cape Town

Incredible Footage Of 60 Humpback Whales Having A Feeding Frenzy.

Last Updated: 28 November 2016 

The internet is abuzz with people talking about the fantastic display of over 60 Humpback whales, having a fun in the Cape Town waters. The scene can be described in one word… Incredible!

Photographer and drone pilot, Kieran Donnelly captured the moment these whales decided to put on a show for people and the footage is breath-taking!  The whales gathered in their numbers to feast on some krill – having their own gathering off the Cape Town coast at Crayfish Factory.  Donnelly posted the video to his Instagram account (@kdonnellyza), celebrating his 200th post in quite some style!

Great footage from Drone pilot Kieran Donnelly

Another video of the whales in Muizenberg were captured by MrCalv from Neopixel.

The latest video of a humpback whale completely launching itself out of the water and through the air is a video not to be missed.
