Pacific Northwest resident Brad Rich was on a fishing trip last week with a buddy in Day Harbor, near Alaska’s Resurrection Bay, when some whales that were breaching in the distance aroused their curiosity.

What happened next was a moment they’ll never forget.

Be forewarned that there is some profanity as Rich gets understandably caught up in the moment.

“I was just in awe,” Rich later told KTVA News. ”I knew that humpbacks do this group feeding. So I knew what was happening as soon as it happened. But to be in the middle of that, to actually experience that as [opposed] to just watching it, it was the most awe-inspiring thing, it’s the most amazing thing to have ever happened to me.”
