This incredible picture captured the moment a whale came flying towards a boat of stunned spectators.
Whale watchers near Maui were given quite the thrill when a curious humpback got almost a little too close for comfort.
The chance encounter was posted online, with many commenting that the massive creature appeared to be "putting on a show."
Thousands of humpback whales migrate to Maui each winter, with the area being the principal mating and calving area of humpback whales in the United States.
