50-tonne whale just underneath the tourist’s fishing boat!


Whale watchers were on board a boat to check out nearby whale. Unknowingly, a 50-tonne whale and her calf were just underneath that boat

A photograph released by Justin Hofman, who happened to be just nearby the group of watchers, took an incredible photo of the whale and the boat.

“Being in the water with a whale is the most humbling experience I’ve ever had underwater,” Hofman said.

For the record, the whales usually flock to the protected lagoon of Peninsula Valdez every year and raise its offspring.
