Humpbacks are generally active whales. When resting, they are often seen jumping spectacularly out of the water, rolling belly side up, or waving their tails and fins out of the water.
They have one of the longest migrations of any mammal and migrate alone or in temporary aggregations of usually non-related individuals.
Females with their new born calves often rest quietly at the surface.
