Terrified tourists were thrown into the air when their boat smashed into a giant humpback whale off the coast of Mexico.

Five people were hurt in the bizarre collision just off La Paz, which took place during a guided tour.

According to local reports, an investigation is underway as tour boats should keep a safe distance from marine animals at all times, but it's thought they may not have known the whale was there as it was deep underwater.
