A 40-ton whale was spotted jumping on to a yacht belonging to a South African couple Sunday afternoon (July 18).

Ralph Mothes and Paloma Werner were sailing off the coast of Cape Town when an enormous whale attacked their boat. However luckily the pair got away unharmed. The yacht on the other hand wass a different story.

Glad to know they made it out okay though!
