Boat narrowly avoids being crushed by whale


Posted on Wednesday, 15 May, 2019 | Comment icon 2 comments
A huge humpback whale was recently caught on camera breaching the surface next to a tiny fishing boat.
The incredible near-miss, which took place in Monterey Bay, California, was captured on camera by photographer Douglas Croft and whale watcher Kate Cummings.

It goes without saying that the man on the fishing boat must have had quite a view.

"Salmon season coincides with the time when humpbacks are returning to Monterey Bay to feed for the summer and there were hundreds of boats on the bay fishing," said Croft.

"This whale had breached a couple of times before this and many times they'll just keep doing it."

"It was fun capturing this video," said Cummings. "I figured the next breach would be around the fisherman because the whale was heading that way and sure enough."

"Though I didn't expect the whale and the boat to line up so perfectly."

The perspective makes it look a lot closer than it actually was. Having said that, that must have been a helluva shock to that boat driver.

This should be titled: "Whale foiled again, boat gets away." . One day you'll do it Whale, don't give up.
