Viewing wildlife by boat is an amazing experience. Whale watching tours and other eco-adventures by boat offer a chance to observe many animals in their native habitat. However, there's a reason that agencies like NOAA have rules in place regarding safe distances when animals are known to be in the area. Mostly, it's to protect us humans from accidentally being injured by the wild animals we're marveling at. Luckily for this week's Boating Fail, they escaped without much more than a good soaking.
