Tiny Boat Dock Gets A GIANT Surprise Visitor

Wait for it... 🐋

When whales breach in the open ocean, it's an awe-inspiring sight. But when one pops up next to a tiny boat dock with people on it, it can feel a little too close for comfort.

Cy Williams, a boat captain at Strike Zone Sportfishing, filmed that exact moment after noticing a massive whale poking around a harbor in Ketchikan, Alaska, in search of a snack.

Don’t let the quiet Knudsen Cove Marina in the video below fool you. In just a few seconds, a friendly giant will pop in for a giant gulp.
