Video: Breaching Humpback Whale Lands on Top of Kayakers

One of the highlights of my recent travels was a whale watching tour on Monterey Bay in California. We spent three hours out on the water watching dozens of these creatures swim all around us. It was an amazing experience to be sure. In this video, shot in the same area that I was in, a breaching humpback whale not only flies high out of the water, but manages to come down on a tandem kayak that is paddling through the area. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident, but the man and woman aboard the kayak got a little more than they bargained for. See for yourself below.
