VIDEO: Whale breaches feet from fisherman’s boat in NH
HAMPTON, NH -- A fisherman captured incredible video of a whale jumping out of the water in Hampton, New Hampshire, last week.
Zack Fahey saw a massive humpback whale breaching just feet from his family’s boat.
“He was so close I can’t believe he was so close,” Fahey told WBZ-TV.
The 28-year-old says the close encounter happened last Friday during a fishing trip with his dad and his buddy.
Their 20-foot boat was bobbing in the ocean just a mile off the coast of Hampton, New Hampshire, when the menhaden they were fishing to catch for bait swam into the path of a Humpback’s feed.
