Watch Giant Whale Swim Under Surfers in California

"It was completely surreal and so insane," the 18-year-old who captured the drone footage said

A high school senior in Southern California was flying his drone around a beach when he spotted something extraordinary. 

A giant whale was swimming toward and then under a group of more than a dozen surfers sitting on their boards in waters near Dana Point, south of Los Angeles, on Monday, NBC News reports.

The surfers appeared largely oblivious to the massive mammal, not noticing even when the whale was just feet away.
