Humpback Nudges Kayaker

This video clip shows the incredible moment a kayaker gets up close to a 44,000-pound humpback whale that surfaced right underneath him.

Berthold Hinrichs was paddling to Gryllefjord Village, Norway, when he saw a pod of wales on all sides of him. The video pans around and three whales can be seen rising out of the water just a few metres from his craft. One of them eventually surfaces almost directly underneath his kayak - causing him to nearly capsize!


While as paddlers we can not tell the whales where to go, we strongly encourage following these whale watching guidelines:
