You’d be hard-pressed not to be humbled to come face-to-face with some of the largest creatures on earth. But when a pair of curious behemoths paid a visit to one family’s boat recently, it inspired a mix of other emotions as well.
In a video shot on Puget Sound in Washington state, at least three gray whales are seen surfacing within arm’s reach of a small vessel and its crew of family members. While the father piloting the boat was clearly thrilled with the magical encounter — his kin, well, really weren’t so much.
The family was divided. In fact, one of them actually called 911.
