Look! We’re on top of a whale! Kayakers lifted by southern right whale in Puerto Madryn, Argentina


IT may sound like a whale of a tale, but a pair of kayakers in Argentina had an extremely close encounter with a southern right whale after it dipped under their boat and lifted it — twice.


The commentary recorded in Spanish translates as:
Male: I’m filming. Look, that one is coming over here. Can you see her?
Female: Yes.
Male: Look. (whale growls) That one got angry at you. Look, here you have another one ... that one’s going to crash into us, eh?
Female: Take pictures of them, take pictures of them.
Male: I’m filming them.
Female: But I want one for Face (Facebook)
Male: I’ll get one later.
Female: Aahhhhh!

Male: Look! It’s coming to bite your oar. Look! Look! Look! Look! Look! Look! Look! Look! Incredible, incredible, incredible! Loooooook! It touched us. We’re on top of the whale, we’re on top of the whale, we’re on top of the whale. Look, look, look, we have two. Maintain your balance, maintain your balance only. Look, look, look, look. Incredible. Look, look. Look look. Look.
