The footage further shows the large mammal leaping in the air to perform one of its characteristics acrobatic jumps. However, instead of landing back in the water, the whale crashed into the back end of the small boat on its descent. This made the boat to appear close to capsizing but it eventually stayed afloat.
It was a close shave with death for the occupants of the boat.
