Whale jumps on boat near capetown

A boating trip on the waters of capetown ended in shock for the couple.

Ralph Mothes and Paloma Werner who were in the boat  had odd expression on their face once they returned from the sea. They added,” we were on the boat when a whale jumped on us. Luckily it didnt damage our boat. Once it returned back to the sea we started engine and came back to the shore”

Here is the picture of the incident.

    Incredible images!

    Not sure if this was an accident, but whales have been known to occasionally become aggressive towards boats… in fact, we had a 12 meter boat sunk by whales off the coast of Mexico in October of 2009. An emergency beacon (EPIRB) and liferaft were instrumental in the safe rescue of the crew. I would never recommend venturing offshore without these two items! And a hearty thank you to all the Coast Guard members who come to the aid of sailors in distress!

    A boat was recently sunk by whales in Australia, and back a couple of years ago another off Hawaii (when it accidentally got between a mother and her calf). Whale incidents (whether boats colliding with whales or the inverse) seem to be on the increase, so we all need to maintain an increased lookout for our friends aquatic!

    By the way, there is a great firsthand account of our incident written by the skipper on our blog… very compelling read with great lessons learned.
