Incredible photo captures whale leaping from water

SYDNEY — A group of whale-watchers had a very close encounter with a humpback whale off Sydney, Australia’s northern beaches.

The moment was captured in a photo shared by Whale Watching Sydney Tuesday.

The whale can be seen leaping out of the ocean, thrillingly close to the whale-watching boat.

Whales migrate north up Australia’s east coast between April and August. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
