The two ships are called Steve Irwin and Bob Barker.
Nobody’s been injured. However, the crew are struggling to mend “significant damage” to their vessels.
There are 34 people on the Bob Barker and 42 on the Steve Irwin.
They have been following the vessel in the Southern Ocean to try to prevent the slaughter of whales.
Captain of the Steve Irwin boat, Paul Watson, said the crews and boats were targeted in an aggressive attack, “The Nisshin Maru came in to push us away from blocking their attempts to refuel.”
He continued, “This is a massive vessel. When it hit the Bob Barker it was like a tank hitting a car; it just rolled right over it. I thought they were literally going to crush the Bob Barker and sink it.”
