Video: Kayak Fisherman Has Very Close Encounter with a Whale

Kayak Fisherman: When it comes to spotting whales out on the ocean, it’s tough to have an encounter closer than this one. The video—which is very short—features a man in a kayak fishing on open water when a very large whale surface right next to him.

That alone is worth the watch, but seeing the size of these creatures put into perspective only makes them more awe inspiring. If you only have two minutes to watch an internet video today, make it this one. You won’t regret it and you’ll probably have a similar reaction as the man in the video.
