Three friendly whales put on something of a synchronized swimming show as they were seen ‘waving’ to onlookers off the coast of Tweed Heads, New South Wales. on August 16.
The trio stunned passengers on a whale-watching boat as they swam side-by-side and slapped their fins against the water several times.
“That is just amazing. They won’t give you a breach, but will give you a threesome," a woman can be heard saying in video of the event.
Passenger, Karen Foster told Storyful the encounter was a welcome treat after difficult times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We were feeling pretty flat with all the COVID-19 business that going whale watching lifted our spirits and has given us a new love,” Foster told Storyful.
