Recently, a group of friends, unexpectedly, got extremely nearer to a feeding humpback whale pair. The group was snorkeling off the California coast at the time.
A small fish school surrounded San Luis Obispo's Shawn Stamback, while he was in the water with Francis Antigua. It has been found the fish were trying to avoid the prowlers below.
The divers were narrowly missed by the whales, when they infringed and gobbled down an army of fish and a mouthful of water. The report said it was the feeding time for the whales off central California.
The two divers were, seemingly, their unplanned main course. Two friends, Jeremy Bonnett and Atascadero's Jay Hebrard, from San Diego, on the divers' boat captured a video of the big gulp. The video has already gone viral with over 2.7 million views as of now.
Stamback told that it was his first encounter in a lifetime with a whale. It was on Saturday at around 11:30 a. m. PT when the close encounter took place in Morro Bay.
"Every single news agency I can think of has contacted me. It's almost gotten to the point where it's getting annoying", stated the video's red-and-black-clad diver, Stamback.
