A whale watching group just lately captured unbelievable footage of a gaggle of humpback whales enjoying with a pod of dolphins off the coast of Eire.
4 humpback whales are seen skimming the floor of the waters off the coast of Cork within the drone video as they shoot plumes of water out of their blowholes and into the air. A pod of dolphins joins the enormous mammals, leaping and zigzagging across the behemoths.

After swimming collectively for a short time, all of the mammals ultimately plunge deep beneath the floor and disappear into the waters of the Atlantic.
The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) instructed Eire’s RTE it recorded the drone video with a view to collect knowledge on the whales’ dimension, migration patterns and breeding grounds in Irish waters.

“On this journey we related with as much as six humpback whales feeding and socializing in offshore waters,” mentioned Sean O’Callaghan, science officer with the IWDG. “This allowed us to gather the primary set of aerial photos and video that shall be used to estimate the size and physique situation of those iconic giants.”
The group mentioned its WhaleTrack Eire venture is targeted on the restoration and conservation of the species and so they hope to incorporate different whale species sooner or later.
