Giant blue whale dwarfs boat

Amazing drone footage of a giant blue whale swimming beside a small tourist boat off the coast of California, USA.

The video, filmed off Newport beach, shows the massive mammal shooting water out of its blowhole while tourists watch.

The filmer later wrote online: "The boat is a 72ft whale watching boat out of Newport Landing Whale Watching named Nautilus.

"The blue whale is estimated to be about 90ft in length."
