Whale! Close, Closer & OMG!

Kayak: check. Camera: check. Giant whale flying right at me: CHECK!

An innocent paddle through the Penn Islands in British Columbia became a whopper of a story when a humpback and her calf breached.

The enormous whales launched into the air repeatedly right beside kayaks and sailboats.

Onlookers captured the event from three perspectives: close, closer, and OMG!!!
