A 40-ton Whale Breaches and Nearly Lands on a Boat in an Incredible Moment

During a fishing trip offshore, a father and son had a close encounter with a massive Humpback whale, and fortunately, the incident was captured on camera for all to see.
While fishing for striped bass and tuna near Belmar, New Jersey, Zach Piller, 23, and his father had an unforgettable experience that they captured on camera.

As reported by NBC News, there was a frenzy of activity in the water that resembled a vortex with small fish leaping about just before the head of the humpback whale surfaced beside the pair’s 18-foot boat.

While Zach Piller had his phone out to capture footage of his father’s catch, an enormous humpback whale leaped out of the water just inches from their boat, giving him an unexpected and incredible moment to capture on his phone camera.

In the video, Piller’s father can be heard saying “Oh-oh” just before the massive creature breached the surface and came dangerously close to hitting their boat

Zach Piller was amazed to capture the moment when a humpback whale breached close to their boat, which is a rare sight. The whale jumped several feet out of the water, and Zach Piller excitedly exclaimed, “Got that on video! Got that on video!” and shouted. “What the fuck? What the fuck?”.

Eric Otjen, the vice president of zoological operations at SeaWorld San Diego, explains that while it’s common for humpback whales to feed on small fish near the shore, breaching so close to a boat is unusual.

“This whale just happened to chase bait fish right next to a boat,” Piller said. “You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery” than the whale popping up “where it popped up.”
