Talk about a whale of a tale.

One unsuspecting woman enjoying a whale-watching boat ride on the Baja in Mexico got more than she bargained for when the mammal slapped her in the face with its tail.

In the brief clip, viewers can see the animal make brief contact with the woman's head before submerging itself once again, giving the sightseer quite a surprise. "Luckily, she was fine and we got it on video!" reads the video's description.

Let that be a lesson to those looking to get close to the aquatic members of the animal kingdom: It's their ocean, and we're all just passing through.
