A spectacular video has emerged from French Polynesia of a humpback whale leaping out of the water just a few feet away from some snorkelers.
The rare perspective was captured close to the tiny island of Mo’orea on October 5.
‘We spotted a humpback whale that was apparently sleeping,’ the snorkeling enthusiast who filmed the dramatic scene wrote online.
‘So we jumped in the water and watched it with our masks and snorkels.
‘The waves were very big that day so it wasn’t easy to swim. The whale slowly started to swim and wasn’t doing much for quite some time.
‘Suddenly it bent its whole body and started to swim to the surface very quickly and breached through the high waves directly next to us.
‘I tried to keep on the surface to get the second jump but wasn’t able as the waves pushed me down,’ the person who shared the footage online wrote.
