According to the Conservation Council Of New Brunswick (CCNB), Sandy Seliga who recorded the video, was on vacation from Toronto and had whale watching on her bucket list - totes nailed it Sandy!

Penny Graham from Mariner Cruises Whale and Seabird Tours told BuzzFeed News that this was normal behaviour. "They breach to communicate with other whales, to stun fish, to knock parasites off and I think they do it to have fun and the whale looked like it was having as much fun as we were."

Penny says the moment was amazing and not one she will soon forget. "I have seen many breaches but none like this one."
