Video shows a group of humpback whales swimming right near a camping lodge. A group of people were able to witness the extraordinary moment and capture it on camera.
One Reddit user commented that this is how humpback whales trap fish to feed. This type of feeding is called bubble net feeding and is a popular way of feeding among humpback whales; however, it is worth noting that not all humpback whale populations know how to bubble net feed.
During bubble net feeding, the humpbacks will gather in a group and circle around a school of fish trapping them in bubbles and creating a net. Then, one whale will sound a feeding call at which point all the whales will swim northwards with mouths open.
The video was originally posted on YouTube by Great Bear Lodge where the visitors were staying.
