Stunned boaters captured the incredible moment a Humpback whale breached just a few feet from their boat off the coast of Long Island.
Steve Haralambidis took his phone out to record the moment after spotting the whale by the Robert Moses tower on Sunday.
‘Never would’ve thought these things come in that close,’ he says before the whale makes an appearance on camera.
Whale, hello there! The whale’s arrival was announced by fish being pushed out of the water

‘He’s a big one,’ replies another man as they wait for the massive whale to come out of the water again.
Announced by fish being pushed out of the water, the whale sticks its head out of the water to feed right next to the men’s boat.
‘Holy s***,’ one of them can be heard saying after the whale submerges again, causing the boat to rock.
‘Wow’ the two men say at the end of the clip in unison, amazed by the proximity of the humpback.
The whale was so massive and breached so close to the men’s boat that it rocked it
The whale submerged completely after just a few seconds of showing itself outside the water
