These Fishermen Were Just Enjoying The Day On The Dock When THIS Happened!

Whales are usually considered gentle giants, but they can sometimes do things that are incredibly freaky, like what happened in this Alaskan marina.


Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts. Whales are considered to be the gentle giants of the sea, but at the end of the day, they're still just that -- giants. If you got too close to one, things might not end too well for you. Most of the time this isn't a problem, as whales generally stay quite a ways out to sea, far from most human activities. Sometimes, though, they find themselves in deep-water harbors, and that's when things can get freaky. Like, for example, what happened in this deep-water port in Alaska.

According to Strike Zone Sportfishing, the humpback had been feeding at Knudson Cove Marina for a few days when they finally caught this on camera!

Nature is amazing, but that still doesn't make it any less terrifying.
