Skip to :45 if you can't bear the suspense.

I've been whale watching before, and nothing like this ever happened. The closest I came was when a seagull pooped on my shirt. That was thrilling, though.

This incredible video was captured by Brad Rich. He and Tony Flanders were fishing in Resurrection Bay near Seward, Alaska, when they suspected there might be some humpbacks nearby. Rich began filming, but was utterly unprepared for the spectacular breach he was about to see. When it happened, he turned into a giggling, pants-shitting schoolboy, which makes this clip all the better.
