Whales narrowly miss divers in California

  • 24 July 2013
One man's close encounter with a whale!

Two divers snorkelling off the coast of California got closer then they expected to a pair of feeding humpback whales.

The 50 tonne mammals were only a few feet away when they popped up to the surface to catch some fish.

You can see in the video just how narrowly the whales missed the divers!

Luckily, the whales and the divers were all unharmed.
