A group out on a New Year’s Day fishing trip were treated to a surprise visit by two adult humpback whales off the coast of Nanaimo.
The whales stuck around for about five minutes, swimming right under the boat which allowed Kyle Noble to capture some close-up footage of the majestic creatures.
He then posted the video to his Facebook account, asking people to share it.
About halfway through the video, a tail breaches the water and someone can be heard saying, “They’re just giving a show,” before they slowly swim away.
Noble posted a second video when the whales followed the boat after it moved to a new location.
