Humpback whale bumps couple's canoe in Hawaii [VIDEO]

An Arizona couple on a canoe trip off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Maui got an unexpected "love tap" from an adolescent humpback whale.

Laurent Lebihan was filming from the canoe when a humpback whale popped up, scaring his girlfriend. The whale bump was attributed to it being humpback mating season.

The canoe stayed afloat, and both the whale and the vacationing couple were unharmed.
