Breaching whales are pretty frightening when you’re, say, right next to them. Honestly, I don’t know how these people kept their wits about them.
A group of kayakers in Canada were treated to an absolute stunner of a show, an adult humpback whale and its baby breaching just metres from their boats.
At first, the group spotted the whale nursing her calf and stayed around for about 30 minutes until the whales disappeared underwater.
But then, the whales decided to show off.
Kayaker Heather Lawrence said about the experience:
There’s not a whole lot you can do when the humpbacks decide they’re going to move.
We thought they were gone… And that’s when they really set off a show.
After the duo had disappeared underwater, they swam closer to the boats, forcing the tour guide to yell at the group to urgently retreat.
The baby jumped, and that was like, ‘Wow, that’s amazing’.”
But then the mom came up right away and she’s humongous compared to baby.
Here’s the video from various perspectives:
