Storyful

NOAA video from the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary shows a humpback whale with its tail out of the water, seemingly catching the wind like a sail.

The NOAA press release with the video states: “In the video, a humpback mother and calf are observed swimming and diving in the sanctuary off Maui’s leeward coast. At one point, the mother appears to be doing a headstand and drifting with her tail out of the water.” Credit: NOAA via Storyful
