Tourists 'Accidentally' Treated to Impressive Humpback Whale Breach
Tourists hoping to catch a glimpse of whales off the San Diego coast got to witness a spectacular splash on July 30, as seen in this footage, shot by marine life photographer and owner of tour company Gone Whale Watching San Diego, Domenic Biagini.
Posting the footage to Facebook on the same date, Biagini told how the encounter was something of an accident.
“Today we ran a special private charter to search for killer whales.
We may have missed the orcas,” he said, “but we did come across the most incredible breaching humpback whale.” A series of breaches are captured in Biagini’s footage, which no doubt softened the blow for those tourists hoping to catch a glimpse of the mammal’s ‘killer’ relatives.
