(Liz Klimas) It was a foggy day near Souza Rock off the central California coast where some divers were observing whales a short distance away.
One diver films with a headcam underwater footage of a large school of fish. Another person takes video of the water above from a boat chartered by Slodivers in Morro Bay.
At one point, the view from the boat above the the diver in the water shows the school of fish swimming so aggressively they disrupt the surface of the water.
Turns out they were trying to get way from something — two humpback whales.
The whales just miss swallowing the divers in the water.
Watch the stunning footage (Content warning: some strong language):
