The group of whale watchers were on a trip to San Ignacio Lagoon, in Baja California Peninsula, Mexico. But they’re really the ones being watched by whales
A group of whale watchers hoped for a one-in-a-lifetime sight, but only to get epi.cally played by the massive whale they were all waiting to capture on camera.
A group of whale watchers nearly missed the moment of a lifetime when a sneaky whale popped up right behind their boat – as they looked in the opposite direction.
Fortunately, the sightseers turned around in their boat just in the nick of time to spot the huge humpback whale, before she disappeared back into the ocean’s depths.
Feeling when measuring is great!
Animal lovers got lucky as they turned around just in time to capture some adorable moments with the gorgeous creature.
One woman standing on the boat is shown throwing her arms into the air to celebrate, while the other sightseers sit open mouthed in surprise and click away on their cameras.
Just like it have known the curios sightseers missed the first opportunity, the humpback whale offered them other glimpse of it.
Photographer Eric Smith, who witnessed the whole scene could not believe his eyes what he was seeing.

When everyone turned around, she quickly sank below the surface. Cheering and hysterical laughter ensued.
“Whale photography involves a lot of luck, but the key is to always be on alert and ready.”
What an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime encounter!
