Dan Fisher, a British maritime engineer spotted a very rare white humpback whale, while navigating along the Norwegian coast.

Luckily for us, Dan Fisher hasn't missed the opportunity to take some snapshots of the extraordinary, real-life Moby Dick.

Mr. Fisher was not an uninitiated person into the water's mysteries, since he has been working at sea for over 10 years. However, he admitted he had never seen such an incredible thing before.

“Everyone I have told about it hasn't believed me until I show them the pictures,” declared Dan Fisher for Daily Mail.

“It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime spot. I saw a lot of humpback whales this year but nothing as spectacular as this one.”

White whales are a variation of the humpback whales, apparently caused by a lack of pigmentation in their skin, comparable to what we know as albinism in humans.

Not more than two other such whales have been previously spotted around the world, reports Tree Hugger.

The first white whale ever known is Migaloo (the aboriginal term for “white fella”), spotted in 1991, near Australia.
