It’s Behind You! Hilarious Moment Sneaky Whale Pops Up Behind Whale Watchers As They Look The Other Way

There was a group of whale watchers hoping for an epic sighting, but they got epically played by the massive whale that they had been waiting to capture on camera.

A voyage to San Ignacio Lagoon on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula was being taken by the whale watchers. The marine life enthusiasts were all patiently waiting in their boat with the cameras on, but they nearly missed the spectacular sight as the massive whale decided to trick them. One of the whales sneaked up behind them in the water as they watched the vast ocean in search of whales.

The animal enthusiasts, however, struck lucky when they turned their heads just in time to take some wonderful pictures with the magnificent beast. The humpback whale provided them with another opportunity to observe it, just as it had anticipated that the eager onlookers would have missed the first one.

Fortunately, the crew was also photographed patiently waiting with their cameras ready, but they almost missed the amazing encounter by looking the wrong way when the whale surfaced just a few feet away from their boat.

Thankfully, the tourists turned around in their boat just in time to witness the enormous humpback whale a few feet away from them before she submerged again. As the crew faces forward, pointing their cameras at the broad ocean in front of them in expectation, photos obtained from another vessel show the stealthy whale popping its rostrum out from beneath the water.

Eric J. Smith, a director, and photographer documented the whale watchers’ close call while visiting San Ignacio Lagoon in the Baja California Peninsula, Mexico. The Los Angeles resident, 49, described how she quietly and secretly raised her head above the water to have a look around. “I was on another panga a few dozen feet away and managed to capture the moment just as everyone began to realize how near she was.”

She disappeared from view as soon as everyone turned around. There was much cheering and uncontrollable laughter. The key to successful whale photography is to always be on guard and prepared. It is simple to become comfortable on a whale watching trip because there is a lot of waiting. It feels like a major breach happens the instant you let your guard down. A humpback whale off the coast of Mexico is depicted in close-up. The species, which may move up to 16,000 miles, can be found in oceans all over the world. They are well-liked by whale watchers since they are notorious for breaking the surface.

“I was in another panga [boat] a few dozen feet away and caught the moment right before everyone realized she was so close. Whale photography involves a lot of luck, but the key is to always be on alert and ready.”

The whaling business once nearly drove humpback whales and other large whales extinct. Since 1966, when hunting was outlawed worldwide, the whale population has somewhat rebounded.
