This Gorgeous Beach Scene Seemed Totally Normal Until They Saw Something Weird

Blog
Cabo is a gorgeous getaway that attracts thousands of tourists each year, but one spectator on the shore took in a strange sight back in 2011. And it certainly wasn't a picturesque sunset. While filming, a traveler noticed that the water seemed uncharacteristically choppy. After a few seconds, they realized that something bizarre was afoot.Watch what jumps out of the water a few seconds in. I didn't even know that manta rays could do that! As it turns out, they're way more athletic than they seem. Nature is full of so many wonders, isn't it? Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/manta-rays-jumping/

Woman Wakeboarding Gets The Surprise Of A Lifetime When A Pod Of Dolphins Joins Her

Blog
This woman was enjoying a nice day out on the boat with her friends, wakeboarding in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico, when all of a sudden she was spotted by a pod of dolphins who wanted to join in on the fun. One after one, the dolphins can be seen playfully jumping out of the water right next to her. Wow! Could you imagine something like that happening to you? Talk about a once-in-a-lifetime experience! That one time I went swimming with dolphins in Florida definitely doesn't seem so special anymore... Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/wakeboarding-with-dolphins/
It May Look Like A Portal To A Mythical Realm, But It Serves A Practical Function

Spillways are designed to control water in dams, but this one looks more surreal than practical. The Covao do Conchos Spillway was built in 1955, and it's part of the Conchos Dam in Portugal. The 4,984-foot-long tunnel leading to the dam is a seriously impressive display of human engineering, but most people are more impressed with its stunning form than they are with its function. I like that while the drone provides us with breathtaking aerial shots of the spillway, it never gets too close. As beautiful as the Covao do Conchos is, it could mean certain death for those unfortunate enough to get caught in its current. This world is full of bizarrely beautiful wonders.

This Surfing Seal Is Riding Into Our Hearts One Wave At A Time.

LIFE
Well, everybody’s heard about the “Surfin Bird,” but what about the “Surfin’ Seal”? After people see the video of him trying to shred on another surfer’s board, it’s sure to be the word. What the Surfin’ Seal lacks in talent, it more than makes up for in determination and cuteness. Not to mention preparedness--it showed up in its own wetsuit! While it doesn’t catch any epic waves, that doesn’t make the surfing sesh any less fun to watch. Check it out! Stoked yet? Try watching the video again with some classic surf rock playing. This song seemed particularly fitting. I knew something was missing. Sealabunga, dudes! Share this post using the buttons below. Read more: http://viralnova.com/surfing-seal-is-ado...

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Nature is pretty incredible, isn't it? Sometimes, we get so caught up in our daily lives that we forget that there's a whole world out there to explore. Although every city, town, and country has its fair share of man-made tourist attractions, natural landmarks really pique my interest. Maybe I just find beauty in the simple things, but I could spend hours looking at photographs of gorgeous bodies of water. There's just something so majestic about them that puts my mind at ease. It doesn't hurt that some of the lakes, oceans, and lagoons across the world are so breathtakingly beautiful that you almost have to look twice to make sure they're real. For that reason, I've co...
