If you were kayaking a long way off shore and a Blue Whale, the world’s largest mammal, surfaced swimming along side you, what would you do? Jump in? I sure as hell would. That’s exactly what this guy did. Later in the video there are other boats nearby but this guy seems to be the only one swimming with them. I know it’s illegal to approach whales closer than a certain distance but if they swim up to you, then it’s hardly your fault is it?

It’s a way better experience than this guy had ending up standing on a great white shark!
