Two tandem kayakers were paddling off the coast of Puerto Madryn, Argentina last weekend when they caught sight of two large—and very curious—whales. It looks as though they were planning on keeping a safe distance but the whales approached and took them for a ride.
Whale watching from kayaks is can be an incredible experience, even though you won’t likely get a lift like the pair in this video. Be aware that in certain areas there are laws in place to protect the animals. In the U.S. law prohibits getting closer than within100 yards, be aware of regulations abroad before you take a whale watching trip.
