Edmond Giroux was aboard the cruise last month and started taking video of the three whales which had surfaced near the boat.

Ocean Explorations Zodiac Whale Cruises posted about the encounter on its Facebook page.

Tour operators said the three whales were "logging" by the boat for several minutes before their "take off."

In Giroux's video, the whales can be seen diving down before launching one by one, causing passengers to scream with delight at the rare triple breach.
