This mind-blowing event took place at Souza Rock, Central California. Two divers were in the water right in the middle of humongous humpback whales feeding frenzy.

Observe the fish surfacing and trying to escape the gigantic whale mouths and two divers almost right in the center of the so called bubble net.

The humpback whale belongs to a species of baleen whale. Adult humpbacks reach the length from 12 to 16 meters (39 to 52 ft) and weigh approximately 36,000 kilograms (79,000 lb).

Divers are naturally not on humpback's diet, they feed on krill and small schooling fish such as Atlantic herring, Atlantic salmon, capelin, and American sand lance, they also don't turn down the opportunity of gulping Atlantic mackerel, pollock, and haddock in the North Atlantic.

Humpback whale feeding technique is called bubble net feeding, where they surround their prey by blowing bubble to create this up to 30 meters (98 ft) in diameter huge bubble net than charge right in the middle towards surface with their gaping mouths where they swallow thousands of fish in only one huge take. The bubble net feeding technique requires a lost of synchronized team work, well take a look for yourself.
