The humpback whale breach is a powerful sight that physically takes your breath away when you see it.

the power of a large whale breaching with the sea spray whipping around it, the spout that usually accompanies the breach and the displacement of tons of water as it lands is an extremely powerful sight.
humpback whales breach for a variety of reasons, to relieve themselves of parasites, to scare off predators and probably just for the sheer joy of jumping out of the water, twisting and turning and smacking back into the water.
a fully grown humpback whale can grow as large as 48 feet (15 metres) in length and weigh as much as 45 tons which is a very powerful breach to see indeed.
a true breach is where the whales body is at least three quarters of it’s length out of the water or more.
