Video shows a humpback whale breaching and landing on a boat in the waters off the coast of Plymouth, Massachusetts. MORE: Town officials say the boat operator reported no injuries and no major damage that affected the seaworthiness of the vessel following the Sunday morning incident. Humpback whales can grow up to 62 feet long and weigh up to 53 tons. They are popular with whale watchers because of their acrobatic displays – including spectacular breaching capable of launching their school-bus-sized bodies entirely out of the water and slapping the surface with their pectoral fins or tails. At the time of Sunday's incident, several boats were around the whale in Plymouth.
