Whale watching might seem like a harmless adventure on the water, but for one group of tourists in Mexico it was a completely different story.

A boat carrying students off the coast of Baja California got up close and personal over the weekend when a whale swam underneath, flipped its tail out of the water and smacked an unsuspecting girl right in the face!

Ouch! The incident was caught on a cell phone camera and uploaded to YouTube. The girl who got the whale tale whack was identified as Chelsea Crawford from Nova Scotia.

Luckily, she's alright, but we expect she'll do her whale watching from the shore from now on.
