Lucky passengers on a whale tour off the coast of Nova Scotia got a sight to behold when three humpback whales breached in front of them. The dramatic footage, captured by Edmond Giroux, starts of calmly enough, with the humpbacks swimming near the boat. But then you hear one of the tour operators telling watchers to get ready for a triple breach.
The whales suddenly take off before launching one by one into the air, causing passengers to squeal with delight at the rare triple breach.
The tour operators of Ocean Explorations Zodiac Whale Cruises explained on Facebook that the three whales were “logging” by the boat for several minutes before their “take off.”
Still, I’m with one of the passengers who asked amazedly, “How did you know that?”
