The amazing whale tail

The amazing humpback whale tail can be 5.5m (18ft) wide, is serrated and pointed at the tip. The tail of each humpback whale is visibly unique, extremely powerful and is often used as a form of non-verbal communication through a tail slap. The sound of the tail slap can be heard underwater several hundred metres away. Guests on board the Eye Spy on Tuesday were treated to this amazing tail slap, captured by a wonderful guest.
