Humpback whale douses boaters near Cape Henry

A humpback whale leaped into the air and made a huge splash next to a boat near Cape Henry.

VIRGIINA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- It was quite the sight and splash for several people boating near Cape Henry Monday.

Pictures sent by 13News Now viewer and photographer Teresa Gibson show a whale leaping into the air and making a massive splash right next to a boat. Her husband, Jeff Brown, also sent us videos of the event.

Gibson says this was her family's fourth visit over the past couple of weeks to Cape Henry and that the whale was swimming and leaping in the air around eight other boats in a circle.

The leap excited every boater surrounding the scene and even drenched a few of them.
