BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Video showing a close encounter with a whale off the coast of Gloucester is going viral.
Doug Shatford captured the extraordinary footage Wednesday evening.
He spotted the whales while walking along the beach in Magnolia when he decided to hop in his 20-foot boat and get a closer look.
“I said I’m going to go get a nice picture of those whales. I’m going to go out there and see them,” Shatford told WBZ-TV. “It was just beautiful. It was amazing. It was a beautiful, beautiful sight."
