Police officers were in for the highlight of their lives when a whale swam up to their boat to make friends.
A video captured a whale swimming up to their patrol boat off of Queensland, Australia’s coast on Sunday. The whale popped in and out of the water to say hello, and put on a splashy show for the uniformed officers, flapping its fin on the water’s surface, and spraying out of its blow hole.
“Wowee. That’s pretty special Jemma,” Sergeant Mick Jones says in the video. “That’s probably the greatest thing I’ve ever seen,” Constable Jemma Crowley adds. Special and great indeed.
