Close Encounter With Humpback Whale

Barcroft TV

A curious whale breeches head first out of the water - giving tourists a close-up view of a lifetime. The 35ft humpback whale swam within arms reach of a boat of tourist by the Molokini Crater in Hawaii. Kelly Bryce, 32, from Maui, Hawaii, captured the incredible footage while working a snorkel tour on a Redline Rafting charter boat. She estimated that the whale weighed about 60,000 lbs - six times as heavy as the boat they were riding in.
