WATCH: The chilling moment 3 humpback whales jump out right next to a fishing boat


Cape Town - This footage of a pod of three gigantic humpback whales jumping out of the ocean right next to a small fisherman's boat is quite incredible.

The two fishermen on the boat, Svein Aasjord and Trond Ivarjord, from Troms in northern Norway must have had the fright of their lives when the whales suddenly jumped out in tandem. Aasjord and Ivarjord were on a weekend fishing trip in search of herring when they came across the gentle giants. 

The poor chaps were obviously nervous about the whales coming to close to their boat, taking into account how minuscule their vessel seemed when compared to the likes of the sea creatures that emerged from the icy ocean. 

One of the men on the boat can even be heard saying on the video, 'I don't want to be closer than that.'

This is surely one fishing trip neither of them would easily forget.
