Incredible images were made of a humpback whale that broke out of the water off the coast of Sydney on Saturday.

The juvenile whale was seen around 10 o'clock in the turbulent seas at Long Reef off the northern beaches.

Defying the cold and gray weather in Sydney was worth it with the audience aboard a whale safari tour that was treated to the spectacular show for 90 minutes.

On rougher days, whales break out of the water more often, Jonas Liebschner of Whale Watching Sydney told Daily Mail Australia.

& # 39; This was a particularly good observation. Normally we see whales breaking two or three times, but this whale broke directly from Long Reef to Manly for 90 minutes, so it was pretty amazing. & # 39;

Why whales break more into turbulent seas is not entirely known, but some research from the University of Queensland found a connection between wind noise and whales that gesticulate more than vocalize.

"Imagine you're at a party and you're trying to talk to someone and they can't hear what you're saying, you start gesturing a little bit," Dr. said. Rebecca Dunlop at the ABC.

& # 39; Humpback Whales do something similar. & # 39; she said.

The wind and jerky waves on the surface create similar sound frequencies under water as what the whales use to communicate.

The researchers discovered that the more wind there was, the more time whales spent on the surface and their fins hit the water.

About 30,000 humpbacks are currently heading south before the warmer weather, after having been in the northern seas during mating season.

The peak season for whale watching runs from mid-May to November.
