ARGENTINA — Two kayakers’ close encounter with a pod of whales turned into an even more special experience, when one of the animals lifted them completely out of the water.

Below is a translation of the YouTube video’s description.

“An incredible evening, lots of sun, kayaking and whale watching. As we watched from the top of the kayak, one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and we lifted the boat twice!”
