Southern Right Whales Frolic Off Cape Town Coast

Aerial footage captures two Southern right whales frolicking off Hout Bay in Cape Town, South Africa. The footage shows the pair slowly swimming near the surface of the sea.

Jason Moskovitz captured the footage using his DJI Phantom 4 Pro camera. He stated he shot the footage two meters from the whales and they were about 1.5km offshore from Hout Bay Beach.

Moskovitz said the relationship between these two whales is unknown but it is common for a mother and calf to travel together.

Moskovitz told Storyful he has been operating drones for 10 years, shooting mostly nature footage and animals in their natural habitats. Credit: Jason Moskovitz via Storyful
