I don't know why...but there's nothing quite as exciting as seeing wild life up close and personal. Especially sea creatures like dolphins, otters...and in this case, whales!

My friend Christine was on a little family cruise Thursday, about 10 miles northeast of Rockport, MA when they spotted a New Hampshire whale watching boat. So they hung around for a few minutes hoping they might get lucky. And wouldn't you know it...a few minutes later...five whales showed up and put on an amazing show.

Here's the video she captured.
