Kayakers blown away by Humpback Whales breaching the water in British Columbia

Be prepared to be awed by the power of a group of humpback whales.

A group of kayakers with Wildcoast Adventures were paddling south of Penn Islands off the coast of British Columbia last week when then spotted the Humpbacks.

“While observing a mother Humpback nursing her calf from a safe distance away, the whales finish up and dove down. What happened next took everyone by surprise!” the outfitter posted on YouTube this week.


The video clips taken from three angles of the same series of whales breaching the surface are incredible.

“Humpbacks are marine mammals and you need to stay back 100M,” Wildcoast Adventures added. “As you can see in this Video they can close the distance very fast and they are unpredictable. Remember ‘See a Blow Go Slow.'”


Make sure you watch until the end.
