This is so incredible to see!
A group of tourists on a recent whale watching trip in Quebec were given quite a treat when a fin whale — the second largest mammal to a blue whale, and much less commonly seen compared to a humpback whale — swam directly towards their inflatable boat.
Upon reaching the boat, the whale turns to reveal its black and white striped belly, before swimming underneath the boat.
No one was hurt, but it must have been fun, exhilarating and also a little scary!!
What an experience.

I guess I’m really into whales? Who knew. 🙂
