Hawaii resident Tracy Mullen captured video of a humpback whale breaching in front of her boat off Kewalo Basin Harbor in Honolulu on January 16. Mullen told Storyful she was out on a boat with the company she works for, OneOcean Diving, when she and her colleagues saw whales in the distance. The group decided to put the boat’s engine on neutral to have a closer look. The crew saw what appeared to be a mother humpback whale and her calf swimming leisurely on the surface. At first, only the calf’s fin can be seen but after a few moments, the mother whale jumps within feet of the boat. Mullen can be heard screaming “Oh my God” and laughing as she captured the scene.
