A band of fishermen have captured an astonishing close-call of a humpback whale that nearly jumped into their boat.
The men taking a guided fishing trip off Canada’s British Columbia almost fell out of their boat when the whale jumped straight from the water and belly flopped at their side.
'It's gonna tip our boat over. Get ready,' one of the men told the others while busy watching a much larger whale slap its fins playfully at their side.
Guide Matt Thornton of Tofino Fishing steered their boat closer to get a look at several of the whales paddling around together when it happened.
Like a spinning torpedo, the massive whale shoots straight out of the water at a near 90-degree angle without any warning to the passengers aboard.
Completing a 360-spin, the whale belly flops with a massive splash just a few yards in their direction.
'That was like, oh man!' a passenger exclaimed while capturing the moment on his iPhone's camera.
'He about jumped in our boat,' the man said.
