Humpback whales jumping at the same exact time is truly an amazing sight to behold.

Humpback whales are known for their impressive leaps and breaches out of the water. Anyone who has been on a whale watching tour would be able to attest to that fact.

Humpback whales jumping as high as they do when they are so large is almost hard to believe.

The feat of humpback whales jumping is impressive enough when a single whale clears the water.

Add in a second whale jumping at the same exact time in what looks like a synchronized effort and you really have a remarkable act of nature.

It is not known exactly why humpback whales jump out of the water. But there are several theories as to why humpbacks, and other species of whales, perform breaches. It could be a means of communication, to make breathing easier in rough seas, or as a display of dominance.

Considering how smart whales are, it might not be a huge surprise if we found out that sometimes they just breach for fun.
