In incredible drone footage filmed by Mark Giradeau, a photographer from California, a fin whale was seen circling a boat showing just how immense the creature is in size.
Sometimes it is rather hard to fathom just how big some of the creatures are in the sea until you see them side-by-side to another object, like a boat.
The boat in the footage is about 26 feet long and the whale is estimated to be around 60 feet long. The most remarkable part, fin whales grow up to 80 feet long, making the one in the video a smaller fin whale.
Apparently, there were multiple fin whales in the area when this video was recorded. Fin whales have been mostly observed riding solo, but they have been seen in pairs or groups of six or seven. During migrations, they might travel in bigger groups of as many as 300.
