Bow-riding occurs when dolphins position themselves in such a manner so they’re lifted up and pushed forward by the circulating water generated to form a bow pressure wave of a moving vessel. 🚒🌊🐬Dolphins are really good at bow-riding, because they are able to fine-tune their body posture and position so as to be propelled along entirely by the pressure wave, often with no tail (or fluke) beats needed. πŸ™ŒπŸ” There is, however, a sweet spot to bow riding and typically the more dominant of the group gets to glide along in the water with no effort at all while ones further away from this sweet spot have to give a tail or fluke beat, every now and then, to keep up! πŸŽ₯ sent to us from @itamar.poj πŸ™
This giant wave in Nazare occurs because of the rare undersea geography. πŸ—ΊEssentially, this location has a deep canyon (about 10,000 feet deeper than the grand canon) that points like an arrow toward the town and this is what creates the ideal conditions for the kind of waves in the video. πŸŒŠπŸ™Œ Here, the ocean swells get focused in this submarine canyon and have much more energy than a normal wave and as the wave approaches the shore it gets very shallow, and that enables the waves to climb really, really high all of a sudden to create these monster waves. πŸ˜±πŸ’™ via @bigfootwaves πŸ€™

πŸ™πŸ’™ Via @noaaoceanexploration - β€œHere's video of the embryonic catshark (baby shark!) inside an egg case attached to an octocoral colony. πŸ‘Ά How lucky were we to see this growing shark wriggling around in its egg case, waiting to get strong enough to emerge and hopefully live a long and healthy life?!” 😍🌊

This white shark was curious at first... then all of a sudden he darted in the other direction! πŸ¦ˆπŸ’¨ Why do you think it changed its mind? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ Via @tristanguttridge πŸ€™
πŸ™Œ πŸ’™Via @adam_ernster - β€œI still canΚΌt get over this encounter. I think of these guys every day and wonder about their mysterious lives. The oceans apex predator just feet away from our boat aboard @newportcoastaladventure IΚΌm so thankful they gave me the opportunity to film and photograph them, along with some of my favorite friends. IΚΌll never forget this once in a live time encounter with these ETP Orcas!” πŸŒŠπŸ™
πŸ™Œ Here’s an incredible capture by @paulnicklen in Antarctica of a leopard seal patrolling for penguin chicks for its next meal! 🐧🍽
This incredible footage was filmed in SkjervΓΈy, Norway for @__behindthemask__ 😍 They spent all afternoon with wild Orcas in the cold water of northern Norway. β„οΈπŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ Diving out of the bait ball, meeting an orca on his way in ... all in a day’s work!πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’ΌπŸ™Œ Would you like their job?! πŸ€” @dadali27 πŸ€™ @greg.lecoeur πŸ™@orcanorway.info πŸ‘‹
Feeling small? πŸ€” Well... the people in this vessel probably do. That’s because their ship pales in comparison to this curious finback whale (the worlds second largest animal). πŸ™ŒπŸ‹ These whales can reach lengths of up to 85 feet and can weigh as much as 80 ton! πŸŒŠπŸ’™ πŸ“Ή @markgirardeau via @discoverocean πŸ€™
