I was thinking the same thing about the dad... She kept asking "Is it going to hit us?" and he just ignores her.

WOW! You just don't know how touched I was to see this video. It's almost like I was there.. The emotion was absolutely priceless! I've always wanted to at least touch a whale or have this kind of moment with a whale.. I've forgotten this desire as a kid and as the whale approached the boat, I began to remember, then the emotion hit me. It was wonderful. What a lucky couple of humans...

Thanks for this!

And when someone ends up getting killed by a....wait for it....KILLER whale, folks will be all, WTFBBQ????
How did this happen???

These same folks would never dream of walking up to a bear or moose or cat Etc. in the wild.
Even these beautiful creatures trained and in captivity have killed before.
I can't wait!

No way, absolutely no way you would get me in that boat. Me and deep water don't mix. I can swim and all but something like a whale swimming under me would freak me out.
I'd chum the waters by throwing up. I agree with another previous post. I don't have gills and webbed toes so I don't belong in the ocean. I know my place.

That was so awesome.

Mother nature rocks!

I would have loved to have been there. The Girl would have gone overboard {By Accident} though


For the record, I will never take you sailing, just for that.

Well he could have at least said "We'll be alright"or something along those lines.

Well whales usually don't randomly attack people, especially people in boats.

I just googled and cannot find any recorded attacks by humpback whales on humans.

If some stupid human dies from something like this then I won't be surprised.

Seeing as it could have did this onto her boat I don't think her freaking out was unwarranted.



Lol ... this one was even better.. the whale and the lady's reaction.

He was probably crapping in his pants as well.

Watching that video again made me think if the story of Jonah is based off any reality, that's probably how it happened.
