A group of fishermen off the coast of South Africa feared for their safety two whales breached just a little too close to their vessel for comfort.

“We were fishing for game fish and the whales came and started to jump at the boat. Very close. Once the bigger whale jumped even closer, I drove off.”

Thankfully, one of the fishermen was recording the encounter. You can see just how close the whales were coming to their boat.
