WATCH: Whale gives fishermen the fright of their life

IT STARTS as a clip of the calm ocean off Mooloolaba.

But that's where the serenity ends.

Three fishermen got the fright of their life when a whale breached only metres from their boat.

The fishermen launch a tirade of profanities as the giant whale almost lands on top of them.

"That's not funny," one said after getting over their fright.

What would you have done if this happened to you?
