Humpback Soaks Boat Full of Whale Watchers
Just off the coast of Monterey Bay, California recently, a humpback whale decided to put on an rare acrobatic show for a boat full of whale watchers.
Not only did the whale make a huge leap out of the water, it also hung around for around an hour splashing about and giving the whale watchers just what they came to see.
Carlifornian resident, Jodi Frediani, 65, lucky had her camera poised at the moment it jumped out the water, just before it soaked the passengers on board the second whale watching boat.
Jodi descirbed the experience: 'It was such a surprise! Having the boat so close really gives a sense of scale, showing just how large and powerful these animals are.'
'This is the closest I've ever seen an adult whale breach alongside a boat. The whale was close enough to rock the boat in its wake.'
