Dan Fisher, 32, was on a boat trip to Svalbard in Norway when he noticed a giant white hump rise from the water.
Rushing up a mast to get a better look, he quickly realised he was witnessing one of nature’s rarest sights — a white whale, just like the iconic Moby Dick in the novel by American author Herman Melville.”
