One moment you’re completely dry on a boat whale watching, the next moment you’re completely drenched on a boat while continuing to look for more whales.
That’s what happened to a group of whale watchers in Port Macquarie, Australia on Saturday afternoon. With phones out, the boatload of whale enthusiasts was ready for a sighting at any minute. One person got extremely lucky and managed to capture the surprise emergence of an enormous humpback whale, according to 9news.
The creature launched in the air right next to the boat — drenching everyone on board — before ultimately disappearing back into the sea.
The person who filmed the big splash tells Viral Hog that they saw the whale in the distance, but “did not anticipate getting the magical shot” they got.
