Two Kayakers Encounter Pod of Right Whales (VIDEO)

Posted by on July 24, 2014

Check out this amazing video of two kayakers who approach a pod of Right whales off the coast of Argentina. This incredible experience is all caught on film from a point of view perspective. From [personal experience, I would never advise getting “up and close” with any species of whale in their natural environment. If you encounter whales while kayaking I would advise keeping at least 100 yards away in order to protect yourself and the whales.

    Sea kayaking is a natural vehicle for whale watching in their habitat: a world apart.
    Because there is strong evidence that innappropriate whale watching (especially with motor boats) can significantly affect the biology and the ecology of whales, I belive in ours right conducts over a sea kayak to mitigate the impact of such especially encounter (keep a safety distance).
    My sightings aren´t in Peninsula Valdes (Patagonia) but in Miramar (Buenos Aires southeast in Argentina). Fortunately, in recent years, there are increasing sightings of Southern Right Whales and Killer Whales and I belive that they are recolonizating historic habitats.
