Humpback Whale Hangs Out With Prince Rupert, B.C. Fishing Boat (VIDEO)

Talk about a big friendly giant.

A curious humpback whale made some people friends while hanging out near their boat off the coast of Prince Rupert, B.C.

In a video uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday, the majestic creature is shown chilling right next to the Thunder 1 boat. The whale stayed there for over an hour, according to the video description.

Doug Emery, who owns Thunder 1 Adventures with his wife, told Global News that the animal was sleeping on the surface of the water when they spotted it, but that it stayed by the boat when it woke up and was looking up at them.

"He was on the people watching tour and we were on the whale watching tour," Emery told the outlet.
