Huge whale appears out of nowhere as scuba divers explore shipwreck in Argentina

This was the moment a group of divers encounter a huge southern right whale in Puerto Madryn, Chubut.

The footage from July 2018 shows the group of divers in the turquoise water exploring the sunken vessel.

Suddenly the large whale appears from outside of the divers' vision and swims above them and away.

The filmer - Michael Lang - can clearly be seen expressing excitement and joy following the encounter.

Lang explained to Newsflare: "We were diving in Argentina, Puerto Madryn.

"We were exploring a wreck when suddenly a whale appeared.

"It is a southern right whale, which they go regularly to those waters during the winter to mate and breed.

"It is strictly prohibited to dive with whales.

"They are very protected in the country, but if you are diving and one happens to appear it's ok as long as you don't bother it in any way."
