Video of whales breaching and pec slapping in Bermuda Print E-mail

North Atlantic humpbacks migrate over the open ocean each spring on their way from the breeding/mating grounds in the Caribbean to their feeding grounds up north. Here you can see five humpbacks in Bermuda still displaying the courting/mating behaviour as two challenging males breach and pec slap to attract the attention of a mother humpback with a calf and a primary escort.

You can also see;

  • a pod of dolphins bowriding the whales and see the scatter action as they dive out of the way of a breaching whale.
  • dolphins bowriding the female as she supports her young calf on her back.
  • the young calf lying on its back pec slapping, learing from the adults.
