How rare was Saturday's "double breach" by two humpback whales off the Newfoundland coast? Whale guide Joe O'Brien says it's the first he's seen during his 30 years in the business.

"I can't tell you how happy I am," said O'Brien in an interview with The Canadian Press. "I've heard tales of double breaches, but I had never seen one. But today I saw a double breach."
