In a video captured by Tristan Krause, whale watchers aboard a tour boat are seen waiting patiently to catch a glimpse of humpback whales off the coast of the island.

Out of the blue, a large humpback whale breaches the water right in front of the tour boat.

Despite getting soaked, the whaler watchers were all happy to have survived and to have gotten the surprise of a lifetime.
