Watch: Flute player summons whale from the depths

From Viviana Guzman, self-styled Flute Queen:

I play my flute for the whales, and they come! I was paddle boarding in Half Moon Bay, CA when all of the sudden a juvenile humpback leaped out of the water and lunge fed RIGHT NEXT TO ME!

  • It appeared to be a coincidence. The whale was breaching after coming up through a school of fish. It’s part of a this type whale hunting methods as best I can tell from video. Note also sea birds in background which hang around feeding whales to join in on the feast.
