Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A group of boaters watching humpbacks off the Virginia coast ended up soaked when a whale took a giant leap out of the water and splashed them.

Teresa Gibson and her husband, Jeff Brown, were filming their whale-watching trip Sunday near Cape Henry when a humpback jumped out of the water right next to their boat.

The whale's landing created a huge splash that drenched everyone on the deck of the vessel.

The whale's jump, and ensuing splash, were recorded from a further distance by Gillian Bura, who was filming from a different boat.
