Almost nobody can dispute that kayaking is all around good fun. You get in a little plastic capsule that suffices as a boat, you get a paddle and off you go exploring the waterways around you. Now while it’s true that these boats are outstanding for bringing you close to nature, there are times when nature can be quiet or otherwise busy elsewhere.

But then there are those rare and awe-inspiring occasions now and then when the world decides to deliver something unforgettable (and just a little bit frightening). Such was the case for these two kayakers in Puerto Madryn, Argentina who came across a pod of humpback whales and the pod decided to say ‘hola’.
Amazing, heart racing, and all filmed GoPro style.
