Rare Baird's beaked whales spotted off California

This incredible aerial footage shows the mesmerizing beauty of a rare and elusive breed of whale. Gliding through the waters in perfect unison, Baird's beaked whales are the largest of all beaked whale species in the world's oceans. They usually dive to more than 3,300 feet and can hold their breath for an hour. In drone pilot Jason Berring's crystal-clear aerial footage, the consistent diving patterns of the whales can be seen, as they usually dive for around 25 minutes before returning to the surface for about eight minutes at a time.
