Unbelievable Whale tail flapping (lobtailing) extravaganzia

We shot this video in Maui last Feb and just recently we were discussing talking with friends about why we had seen. Apparently there is some speculation that whale’s flapping their tales, or lobtailing can be a sign of aggression (See Whale Info). To our amazement, we also found out that day a baby whale had indeed been attacked by a shark (see Maui News ). It’s very possible the shark was near and this chased him off or this might have been a whale trying to scare the shark off.
