Amazing video of twirling whale

This amazing video shows a fin whale twirling as it dives beneath a whale watching tour boat off Dana Point, California, according to the Orange County Register.

“Captain Larry Hartmann witnessed about 10 fin whales playing ten miles off the Dana Point coast and shot this video,” writes the Register.

Fin whales are commonly found in the area surrounding the Gulf of California. These whales are estimated to weigh up to 150,000 lbs. and can live for over 90 years.
