ORLEANS, MASS. (WHDH) - A family out fishing on the Cape captured an incredible sight when several whales appeared to breach the water at the same time.

Video shared with 7NEWS shows three whales leaping out of the water and splashing back into the ocean in sync.

The man who captured the video told 7NEWS that he was tuna fishing with his daughters when they saw the whales. Robert Addie said he’s seen plenty of the aquatic mammals in the past, but nothing compared to this scene off the coast.

Addie and his daughters were together after over 10 years a part, and the whales made the occasion even more special, Addie said.

“I was stunned,” Addie said. “I’ve worked tuna and swordfish as a young man out of Gloucester, worked fishing in Alaska as a young man, literally have seen thousands of whales, never seen a triple synchronized breach ever.”

Addie said he thinks the whales were likely teaching a younger whale how to hunt for fish.
