A professional underwater cameraman got up close and personal with a humpback whale.
Chris Coates said he was recording whales off the east coast of South Africa when a whale started swimming right towards him.
The whale smacked him and his camera. Fortunately, Coates wasn't hurt.
Coates tells 'Jukin Video' he doesn't think the whale was trying to hurt him or it would have hit him much harder.
