Whale lifts kayakers: Now See THIS!
2 0

 Two kayakers paddling in the ocean in Argentina had a whale of a time this week after they found themselves being raised out of the water on top of one of the creatures.

Luckily they managed to capture the moment on video, with some startling close up footage of the whale.

They posted the footage on YouTube with a description below that translates as: “An incredible evening, lots of sun, kayaking and whale watching. As we watched from the top of the kayak, one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and we lifted the boat twice!”

    Such peaceful creatures. They knew exactly what they were doing, making contact with humans. One wrong move could have tossed the Kayak high into the air.
    I am concerned as to what will happen to them with the new Oboma Oil Drilling Plan along the atlantic coast. The sonic booms will destroy large amounts of marine life. Where are all the Greeny's over this one?

      @Bryan w Making contact - but to play? or just to amuse the smaller creature?
