Two humpback whales almost had a California diver for a snack over the weekend.

The divers were in the water on the central California coast trying to get footage of the whales in the distance. Suddenly, the humpbacks surfaced just a few feet from from the diver.

"You know before we know it here's all these bait fish just coming straight up in your face and two humpback whales were right behind them chasing them all the way to the surface," diver Shawn Stamback said.

The divers said the whales were so close they could have touched them.
