Boaters had a whale of a time off the coast of Virginia near Cape Henry when one of the enormous beasts got a little too close to their boat.
The unidentified whale watchers spotted the humpback yards from their small fishing boat.
‘He’s right on top of the water, right in front of us,’ says a man as the mammal is spotted spurting water through his blowhole.
