Silva, who's from San Rafael, says the whale watching tour of about 20-30 people took off from Pier 39 and the whale came out of the water around 11 a.m., just outside the Golden Gate Bridge.

He said he was recording for a while, hoping to catch something, and lo and behold, this incredible moment was captured.
