Imagine you’re on a boat whale watching in Alaska. You’re looking to see the beautiful creatures of the sea. You see a few pop up here and there. They are spouting out of their blowholes and you get excited. But imagine, if you were on a boat with a couple other whale watchers and a whale decides to breach right next to your boat.
This, for most watchers, is a special occasion and rarely happens. However, for a group of whale watchers on the Pleasant Island in Alaska, they got the surprise of a lifetime. And it was a really wet one.
One Humpback whale was either attempting to play, be funny or just had some special luck in the spot he chose to breach. The video shows the whale breach right next to the whale watching boat, almost as if he was going to come down on it. He sprays all of the watchers with water as he comes back down.
