I mean, talk about getting your moneys worth out of a whale watching tour. It really doesn’t get much crazier than this.
Humpbacks are absolutely ginormous, weighing up to 66,000 pounds and stretching as far as 55-feet long. We’re talking twice the size of a school bus… that means even a small one is massive by our standards.
Whale watching is a favorite of many tourists around the world. It provides a very safe way of viewing some pretty incredible animals that you just don’t see every day.
Though many people go out to do this, not very many get encounters this close. Hell, some people don’t even see a whale. This group should head to the store and buy a lottery ticket because they had some luck on this day.
A group of whale watchers went out into the deep blue off the coast of Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia, looking for some ocean giants.
The video shows the group eagerly waiting to see the show they came for.
Out of nowhere a humpback comes nearly completely out of the water.
The crowd all gives a good “woah!” as they get absolutely drenched in water, with the whale being mere yards from the boat… and whales have taken down boats before by landing on them.
But thankfully, that wasn’t the case here… talk about a good bang for your buck.
This humpback was no giant in terms of how big they can get, but its still a massive animal.
The young whale was excited to put on a show for the group, and the, it casually raced away with its family back into the abyss.
