Watch: A whale leaps from the ocean’s {surface}, scattering fish, off Gloucester


A whale leapt from the ocean depths, slicing by way of the rippling {surface} and scattering dozens of fish dwarfed by its dimension — and the entire thing was caught on video.

Doug Shatford captured the second simply off the coast of Magnolia, a portion of Gloucester, on Wednesday. Caitlyn Shatford, his daughter, posted the video on Facebook.

“Wow, that was crazy!” Doug Shatford will be heard exclaiming within the background of the video because the whale emerges from the ocean. “Look at that, he’s waving to me. Oh, I love him, he’s beautiful. See you later, buddy. I love you.”

Shatford shot the video Wednesday night. He had been close to Shore Road in Magnolia when he observed the whale. Fortunately, his boat was within the close by harbor.

“I said, ‘I’m going to go see him,’” he stated. “I jumped in my boat.”

There have been another individuals in boats close to the whales when Shatford arrived simply off Kettle Cove Island.

“We saw the spouts going, we saw a couple moving or jumping,” he stated. “Then everybody left, the whales looked like they were going out to sea.”

But then it occurred – Shatford realized the whales weren’t completed with the realm and realized they have been shut. He shortly put his boat in reverse.

“And then boom, that whale came out of nowhere,” he stated.

Shatford thinks his spouse, Shelly, who handed away from most cancers a few year-and-a-half in the past, was with him on the time.

“And I think she had me see that wonderful site to show everybody,” he stated.

Shatford stated he wasn’t scared.

“I barely even flinched,” he stated. “It was like, I thought I would be scared. It was too beautiful to be scared. … I was loving it.”
