Footage by Diver Shows Up Close Humpback Whale Breaching

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


When you're diving, you should always be careful of the possible dangers around you. Sea life can be unpredictable, and sometimes this unpredictability comes with the rare opportunities to capture amazing footage.

Diver Beau Pilgrim is one of the lucky ones, having been able to capture the breaching of a humpback whale no more than just a few feet away and at the perfect angle, both above and below the ocean's surface.

Despite how close he was to being sandwiched between the whale and the surface of the water, he got a great shot and lived to tell the tale.
