Woman Filming Rainbow in Maui Almost Misses Humpback Whale Breach

It’s the kind of problem we should all have: a woman on a Hawaiian tour boat nearly missed a humpback whale breach on Friday, January 10, because she was busy filming a rainbow.

Toni Colombo told Storyful she was recording the colorful phenomenon on behalf of the tour company when “the giant humpback whale breached next to the Ultimate Whale Watch raft!”
