WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – Fishermen sitting near Carolina Beach Inlet got quite the treat Tuesday.

The whales were sighted about a mile from Johns Creek near the Carolina Beach Inlet.

The video captured by Hunter Ratcliff shows the mammals breaching, splashing and spouting water from their blowhole.
