Some photographers are luckier than the others, and Craig Capehart is a living proof of that. Because recently on his whale watching trip in South Africa, he managed to snap a rare video of a giant humpback whale taking a breather while fully jumping out of the water.

A 40-ton giant was filmed in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mbotyi by Craig who at the time was sitting in a “rubber duck” inflatable boat when the acrobat started its show. “It seems that never before has a recording been made of an adult humpback whale leaping entirely out of the water! A very rare event, indeed,” wrote Craig alongside his video. “Dolphins and even Great White Sharks have been seen flying out of the water, but this is a first for an adult humpback whale!”

Check out the clip below, stitched together with many more whale acrobatics.
