An Australian fisherman’s once-in-a-lifetime experience is going viral.

He was out in Sydney Harbor when a whale got very close and then went underneath the boat.

It turns out the gentle giant needed help.

The whale had a plastic bag and fishing line stuck near its mouth so the fishermen helped free him.

The whale even stuck around long enough to allow time for a few selfies.
