Too close for comfort!

This happened back in January, but some news sites are covering it again. Anyway... a little too close for comfort. Apparently they were filming for BBC documentary.

Close. If the guy on the helm had ducked instead of planting the stick, they were gone.

Excellent, very close indeed, I use to visit Glacier Bay in Alaska in my cruise ship days, would be woken up in the morning by the sound of Ice scraping againts the hull a few inches from my head (crew were on lower deck), glaciers are magnificent, they are much larger in reality than the pictures or video can show.
