One sentence from National Geographic (Dec.,2014):
"Sunlight sparkles on air bubbles trapped in their fur, and when they somersault and speed away, they trail a champagne wake."

What is champagne wake?

    In case this is part of your question: It's this meaning of wake:
    1. Naval Terms the track of waves left by a moving ship or boat.

    What kind of animal is this? In any case, they leave a track of waves as they move through the water, and it's full of bubbles, as Copyright has said.
