I like to consider myself an adventurous person, but this is not one of the things in life you would catch me doing.

I have never understood the fascination that people have with whale watching on open water. There is no way you would catch me on one of these boats ever. Whales are not stupid and they know what is going on. They also know that they are three times the size of the boats and could flip them over with ease.

These people got an up close and personal view of exactly why I wouldn't do this. As the boat is cruising along, out of nowhere, a whale decided to breach the surface of the water. Sure, from a distance this is an amazing sight. Up close and personal, not so much. Even though they were laughing afterward, they very easily could have been squished and turned into fish bait. No thanks.
