We live on a beautiful blue planet, filled with life, stunning landscapes, incredible technologies and vast bodies of water. In fact there is so much water in the oceans, seas, lakes, lakes and rivers that it covers 71% of the earth’s surface. The oceans are filled with beautiful reefs, unique aquatic organisms and lots of mystery that we have yet to truly grasp and understand.

Researchers and scientist all around the world are making new findings every single day. Whether it’s a new species of fish, seaweed, or coral reefs most of the oceans secrets have yet to be revealed! With all this being said, Marine Experts to have a vast knowledge of these aquatic environments even though there is so much more to learn.

Now that summer is finally here, millions of people from all around the world will be heading to beautiful beaches, warm sunshine, nice ocean breezes and soft sand slipping through your toes. The beach is the perfect place to relax, get a nice tan and most importantly destress from all the complications of day to day life.

While going to the beach is one of the most awesome things you can do during the summer, there are major risks that everyone should be aware of to avoid a potential tragedy. One of these risks is something called ‘square waves’ that most people are completely unaware of. Knowing about this type of wave form could potentially save your life and the lives of others!

Today’s story will cover exactly what these ‘square waves’ are and what you should do if you find yourself in the middle of it. For the most part ocean waves come horizontally and directly towards the shore. Although these normal waves are relatively safe, the undertow which can pull you out to sea is something everyone should be aware of. With that being said, in some places the waves coming towards the shore can sometimes form squares or a chessboard like structure.

These waves tend to occur in places where 2 oceans or seas come together. As the 2 separate oceans collide with one another they will begin to make a crossing pattern. While viewing this natural phenomena can be extremely beautiful, if you happen to be in the water when it happens you could find yourself in grave danger, due to powerful riptides which can suck you under and cause a tragic drowning.

The following video will cover this natural phenomenon more extensively, watch it below:

It Took Them Over 5 Hours To Try To Save THIS Whale From A Net But Then The Whale Does The UNTHINKABLE!

When somethings wrong and a Humpback whale needs rescuing, who do you call? For crab fisherman working in the waters off of the coast of San Francisco, California, the answer was the Marine Mammal Center. As soon as they received the call a team of volunteers and divers was immediately assembled and they quickly set out to find the stricken whale. Time was of the essence and they knew they had to locate the poor whale before he disappeared and was lost to the vast ocean forever.

When they finally found the massive mammal they assessed the situation and noticed that it had become trapped in a messy tangle of ropes. There were many different lines that had become wrapped all around its body and they had started to dig deep into the skin.

The painful lacerations were slowly weakening and sapping the whale of its strength, and making it vulnerable to predators. Without help and human intervention, the whale would never untangle itself and would surely die a slow and painful death.

Working among the team that day back in December was an experienced diver and animal activist named James Moskito. He had done high risk rescues for over 25 years, some with the military, and was the first to enter the water. Moskito began the long arduous process of cutting the whale free from the ropes and described the mess tangled around it as being equal to a 3,000 pound anchor.

He explained that “Some of the individual ropes went into the blubber two or three inches deep. I put my hand on the whale and I told the whale, ‘OK. This is gonna hurt.’ The whale was so cooperative, it would open its mouth and a guy would put his hand up inside of it and pull pieces of rope out of the baleen one by one.”

All the while the whale remained near the surface and never acted aggressive towards any of the divers. He simply floated calmly over the course of the five hours that it took before he was finally freed of his chains.

Once the Humpback was clear to go, an extraordinary and wholly unexpected thing happened. Instead of leaving the divers, it dove down below them and then back up to the surface, right to where James was. The gentle giant then slowly swam in circles and approached his rescuers, rubbing up against each one of them in turn to express its gratitude and thanks for the help.

Moskito said that “It seemed kind of affectionate, like a dog that’s happy to see you. I never felt threatened. It was an amazing, unbelievable experience.” It’s something you have to see to believe and truly appreciate, so check out the video of the incredible rescue and relive the experience!

She Sticks Her Hand Into The Water. But Everyone On The Boat Is Stunned When The UNTHINKABLE Comes Out!

Whale-spotting is always an exciting event, as these awesome creatures have such an extraordinary essence.  The video you are about to watch below was filmed in Mexico’s famed San Ignacio Lagoon, an area that is renowned for being one of the most likely places in the world to see whales!

In fact, due to the abundance of whales in San Ignacio, whales seem to have grown comfortable with human presence in this lagoon, often actually approaching the tourist boats.  However, the boats are prohibited from initiating the contact with the whales; they are required to wait patiently in one spot, in the hope that a whale will make the approach toward them.

Surprisingly, the whales aren’t avoidant about coming close; they do so quite frequently, which indicates that they have grown to trust human interaction. In the incredible footage captured by these excited whale-watchers, you will see a mother gray whale appear and then proudly lift up her baby calf.

This was astounding, as whales are extremely protective of their young.  The excitement of the tourists on the boat is palpable, as they enjoy this rare and beautiful event.

Watch the video below for this once in a lifetime experience! 🙂

She Drops Her Cell Phone In The Water. Seconds Later She Gets The Surprise Of A Lifetime

There is nothing worse than that ‘sinking’ feeling of watching your cell phone fall into a body of water.  On a modeling shoot in the Bahamas, pro model and dancer for the Miami Heat Teressa Cee, had just such a moment.  She was trying to be careful with her cellphone, while shooting footage on a floating platform in the Atlantic Ocean, by asking someone to hang onto her phone.

The best laid plans went awry, as the guy accidentally dropped it in the Blue Island Lagoon in the Caribbean.  The Lagoon offers the tourist attraction of a multitude of dolphins.  Although Teressa’s phone had sunk to the bottom, something really surprising happened next.

Watch this adorable footage as Cacique, a well-known playful and talkative dolphin, pops up out of the water to return the phone, defying all odds.  Whether or not the phone will be restored to working order, this priceless moment will be one Teressa will never forget.  Her delight and surprise can be enjoyed as you watch the video below.  It put a big smile on my face.

They Were Swimming In Australia Looking For Sea Turtles. Then They Heard an Odd Sound

Some people can only dream of swimming in the open ocean alongside wild whales. For two extremely lucky boaters who were out on the water, that dream became a reality. They now have one heck of a whale tale to tell after their extremely rare and awesome encounter with two of the massive mammals.

Brad Nicholls and his girlfriend Emmy-Rose Curtis had left dry land and gone out in search of sea turtles off the Gold Coast of Australia when they happened across a mother humpback whale and her baby calf. Not wanting to miss the opportunity, the adventurous couple seized the moment and quickly jumped into the water to swim around with the huge mammals.

The whales didn’t seem to mind the human company and even hung around for about an hour or so. That’s much longer than what they typically stay for, which is usually just a couple of minutes. Thankfully Nicholls and Curtis brought along plenty of film equipment since they also happened to be testing out some new camera gear suited specifically for underwater use.

Curtis told the local news station, ABC 7, “we were just playing around underwater with the GoPros and all of a sudden there was something much larger than a turtle there. In ten years I have never seen this type of behavior for whales with a boat, let alone with us in the water.” Both he and Curtis work for whale watching companies and so they’re really familiar with whale behavior and comfortable being in the water with them.

The fact that they see the mammals day after day and never get a chance to be able to swim with them also makes their story all the more sweeter! They managed to snap a few selfies with the massive mammals as well as capture some video footage that you can check out below.

For the most part, the whales stayed near the surface while the pair swam happily around. One of the cooler things that happened during their encounter was when they managed to communicate with the peaceful giants by slapping on the surface of the water and the whales slapped back with their fins.

What began as a routine boat ride for the couple turned into the swim of a lifetime- You have to see the footage to truly appreciate how magical it all was, enjoy!

Man Goes Face First Into One Of The Biggest Waves On The Planet. What The Camera Caught Is UNTHINKABLE!

image via – youtube.com

If a 50 foot wave was barreling down upon you, the last thing you’d do is sit there and dive right into it! Waves are incredibly powerful and way too easy to underestimate. Even a 10 foot one is quite daunting to face, let alone one over six stories tall. Only a few brave souls on Earth would dare do such a thing and the majority of them, if not all, are big wave surfers.

Clark Little likes to surf but he takes on monster waves for a different reason, one that doesn’t involve riding a board. He gets in the water for the unique photo opportunities the waves present when they break on the sandy shore.

The avid wave photographer is no stranger to danger. For him, being tossed and thrown about by the ocean surf crashing onto the beach is all in a days work. The images he has managed to capture are absolutely beautiful and majestic. They’re full of light, liquid, movement, and are worthy of being framed and hung up on the wall for all to admire. You can view some of them in the accompanying video where he talks about his passion and love for what he does.

Little didn’t ever plan on making a career out of photographing waves. He kind of fell into it after his wife came home one day with a piece of art that featured the nearby Waimea shore break. He looked at the photo and thought that he could capture an even better picture so he took a waterproof camera and headed to the beach.

He proved himself right and the awesome photos he’s taken over the years speak for themselves.
