Paddleboarder's incredible encounter with curious whales captured by drone footage
This paddleboarder's incredible encounters with whales were captured by a drone hovering over him.
Footage off Puerto Madryn, Argentina's west coast, shows one southern right whale rising to the surface to take a close look at the paddleboarder.
"These whales surely love paddleboards. Every time they spot one floating on the water, they get all excited and approach it but not in an intimidating way," Jonas said.
Another clip shows a whale swimming directly under the boarder before circling back around with its friend.
The filmer said: "Here's a clip of a southern right whale playing with a person on a standup paddleboard. It's like the whale was trying to get the attention of the person, just like a puppy does when it wants you to play with it. The only difference is that this puppy is bigger, duh."
Both clips were filmed on August 31.
