Close encounter with humpback whale near Victoria (VIDEO)

Dec 19 2017, 4:57 pm

On Monday, a group of whale watchers were very lucky to have been able to spot a humpback whale just metres away from their boat.

The group was on a vessel operated by Westside Whale Watch Charters. They spotted a humpback whale in the distance, but they didn’t expect the 40-foot mammal would re-surface just metres away. The entire close encounter lasted for about an hour.
