Watch: A minke whale put on a show for a Marshfield lobsterman

“Don’t jump on my boat, buddy.”

A minke whale put on quite the show — including a leaping belly flop — for a Marshfield fisherman out at work on Saturday, Quincy’s Patriot Ledger reports.

According to the newspaper, Patrick Hurley was bringing in his daily catch when the whale started swimming around his boat.

“Wow! He looked right at me,” the lobsterman exclaims as the whale breaches in a video shared by the Patriot Ledger. “Don’t jump on my boat, buddy.”

“I gotta get to work,” he later calls to the whale.

Minke whales, which can grow up to 35 feet long, are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act
