Video: Nine metre long whale surprises Maltese fishermen

A group of Maltese fishermen were in for a surprise when they caught sight of a whale swimming very closely to their boat just off  Gnejna bay.

This video filmed by the fishermen shows the nine foot long whale gliding through the sea as it swam towards their boat. On Facebook, James Buttigieg described this experience which took place on Tuesday as an incredible one. He said that the whale was around 30 feet (nine metres) long and was swimming around ten miles out from Gnejna. He added that the whale spent around ten minutes circling their boat until they finally left the area after the whale turned around and started swimming back out to sea.
