(RNN) – Any closer and they might not have lived to share their story.

The TAZ Whale Watching tour out of Gustavus, AK, was near Pleasant Island when a humpback whale breached and then landed within a few feet of the boat.

Just about everyone on board got a good soaking.

“Wow,” a few folks shouted. There was plenty of nervous laughter too.

Tristan Krause caught it all on video and shared it on YouTube.

Now, they’ve all got a whale of a tale to tell.
