Richard Melvill has shared a new drone video of a humpback whale and her calf swimming and playing just off the coast of Umdloti in KwaZulu-Natal


Richard Melvill is back with another incredible video of the ocean and its wonders. Previously, he shared footage of dolphins in 2017 and again in 2018. This time, his creative drone footage captured a few whales playing in the ocean.

He filmed the footage at Umdloti Beach. Umdloti Beach is one of KwaZulu-Natal’s more beautiful beaches. Located in Durban, the beach is a popular spot to go surfing or dolphin watching. It is situated ten kilometres north of Umhlanga Rocks.

The single entry road leads down to the beach, surrounded by a small town. It is a popular place during the South African holiday seasons.

The surf spot is a good one if you don’t mind sharing the waves with playful dolphins. It looks like an incredible experience, the dolphins jump in and out of the waves, or ride along with them.

The video shows three humpback whales having the time of their lives, splish-splashing around with no care in the world.

“We were really lucky to have 3 Humpback whales playing right in front of us in Umdloti today. Hope you enjoy getting a closer view than from the beach,”
