The earth is a really big place, and our exploration of it is nowhere near finished. There are still large tracts of the rainforest and ocean that we know next to nothing about.

What’s even crazier is that we don’t know all that much about many of the animals we might think of as familiar. Take whales as an example. Even though there are dozens of organizations that focus primarily on studying whales, their migration patterns remain a mystery to us and we’ve only just begun to grasp how they communicate and interact with one another. Perhaps this is part of the reason why this video is all that much more exciting to see.

The kayakers featured may have been prepared to see some marine animals on their morning trip – but from the looks of it, they got a little more whale than anyone could have expecting that morning! The giant marine animals don’t seem to even notice the people around them as they dive up and down from the water.

While the poor boaters were probably more shocked than anything at the time of this encounter, we’re sure that they paddled away knowing they had just seen to best show of their lives. Videos like this one just go to show that SeaWorld and other marine parks can’t hold a candle to the real thing.

Who the people or the whales? I've seen people follow whale watching boats in small rafts and the whales and dolphins seem to love the interaction.
