    A DRAMATIC set of pictures show a man nearly being swallowed by a Bryde’s Whale off Port Elizabeth Harbour. Rainer Schimpf, 51, has worked as a dive tour operator in South Africa for over 15 years. But in February, he experienced something very rare - the inside of a whale’s mouth. In perfect sea conditions, Rainer and his team set off to document a sardine run - a natural event where gannets, penguins, seals, dolphins, whales and sharks work together to gather the fish into bait balls. Rainer and his colleagues film the expedition for educational and environmental purposes.Split into two groups, Rainer led his team into the ocean, about 25 nautical miles from shore.But it was when the sea suddenly churned up that the team knew something strange was happening.

      Whatever, captain k-nuckles and flapjack do this all the time

    2. Jack Tar

      Those whales don't eat dolphins.

    3. KateOwlNebula9

      KateOwlNebula9 Cut down on your garlic and limburger cheese and you will experience what Jonah did. Real short book. Robert Alter's new translation "The Hebrew Bible" is wonderful. A Jewish midrash says that Jonah looked through the fish's eyes (they knew the difference between fishes and whales) and saw the wonders of the deep. You missed out on lanternfish and giant octopi and squid. Say Jonah's prayer.

    4. Hiddles&Stan4life

      damn it Jonah..not again!

    5. Anacca Garcia

      Those whales are the nicest whales ever. Their humpback whales. Their literally teddy bears lol

      1. Renee Renee

        Well he'd most definitely spat me back into the ocean.

    12. Kevin Andric

      Get bornagain, read john 3;3

    13. lazy dog

      Message from the whale: you're a load your mother should have swallowed....

    14. 林蝦蝦


    15. Glory God

      I'd be scared asl

    16. Val M

      ,спасибо, что всё видео по кадрам не сделали(ирония).

    17. alayjah jones

      When I heard about this I literally thought people were talking about Jonah

    18. ThievesDen

      The whale was in on it

    19. K

      That was an amazing situation, an accident, pure chance. unforgettable!

    20. ollah4

      Ja moin

    21. Lorde Vader

      No is true



    23. Shek Afrid

    25. Black Viking

      This is why I stay in bed

    26. Hebstrixia

      Reminds me of when Im enjoying a delicious juicy hamburger, then all of a sudden bite down on a hard, disgusting hunk of gristle...blech.

    27. Brayden Todaro

      Did he see patchy the pirate

    28. Otosaka Yuu

      I'm glad he got spat out, it's definitely better than being torn apart in half or dying by being crushed....

    29. GunBucky Bucketman


    30. Misha

      Careful, that's how Biblical stories get started.

    31. diGritz1

      Whale Mom: I told you no snacking before you finish your dinner. Now spit it out!

    32. Liam Hammond

      Wale - ”What is this in my mouth, I’ll have to floss now”.

    33. Bru - uh

      Can't believe how they weigh tons but only ribs are broken if you get accidently hit by one?

    34. VegasBros

      Here because of 9gag

    35. Gucci Tae


    36. Tourren Mr

      Next episode: end up inside a shark

    37. Lolly Imu

      The other white meat.

    38. TheEpicOne

      Just like jonah. If your a believer of christ, you'll know what in talking about.

    39. ljpjcg

      Do whales differentiate colors? I was wondering in case divers could wear unusual suits that make them not look like dolphins.

    40. Паша Лариошин

      да , человеку явно не повезло . Это круто конечно !

    41. Tamethea Bush

      And that is the reason why you WATCH the whales from a safe distance in a BOAT and not to SWIM with the whales. They're not friendly little dolphins you know. Wait, they are partially dolphin. Ok, I'll shut up but OMG what an awesome experience and something your children will be telling your grandchildren! :D

    42. jmatt4life

      AMAZING!!! This man was lucky and very lucky!

    43. Kjetil Pettersen

      What an idiot! Swimming around in the animals' food!

    44. Val Mchugh

      He seems to be more of an observer at the time....It was an accident...don't be silly...

    45. Dana Alame

      Holy cow that’s insane

    46. Tekatar İnatör

      *Whale was a paid actor!*

    47. Duzhn

      I did a project on this

    48. Multiverso Da Kajuh

      Dentista Animal... Kkk

    49. Laykan Thee Alien

      *_Very_** fuckin cool*

    50. Laykan Thee Alien

      *Hurry up commercial this title has me enticed*

    51. Sophia Parsons


    52. Alice Wilde

      It was an ACCIDENT. Whale didn't try to eat him, it was trying to eat the sardine and the stupid man got in the way. He's such a narcissist for making it into this great story of his 'escape'.

    53. Cassbob

      whales do not know revenge, it's a pitty.

    54. Horizon sky

      Whales don't like junk food

    55. Dina hawa

      Aw so cute I love every animal so cute

    56. Bryan Brasuell

      What kind of whale ??

    57. SpyengoEen

      He's lying! He was never swallowed by a whale. Can't you see how his nose is growing with every word?

    58. Shay Posey

      He should change his name to jonah

    59. Jamon Rose

      “I bet you won’t snatch a human and let him go again” Whale: *Hold my beer*

    60. Siamtei Siamtei

      That circle in the thumbnail wasn't needed

    61. Andromeda Planet

      I'm scared of no man But this… whale… It scares me.

    62. Mixed Gauge Videos

      It seems to me that the whale, while unable to see the diver, realised he wasn't food, and let him go. This proves they're intelligent creatures, and not purely hunters like sharks or crocodiles!

    63. Rookie Kawaiizu

      I have ocean phobia.

    64. Debra Moss

      How amazing! Such phenomenal creatures, so often underestimated in their gentleness. Wonderful video, thanks so much for sharing!

    65. Nqobile Ngobese


    66. Miguel Shackleton

      I glad that he didn't taste so good

    67. TheXalos

      How does it feel to be rejected by a whale?

    68. phelipe plays

      Alguém português?

    69. Lost Alien

      But the real question is.. have you ever been swallowed by a land whale?
