WATCH: Humpback Whale Lifts Kayaker Out of Water in Argentina

Some kayakers off the coast of Puerto Madryn in Argentine Patagonia went for the ride of their life when a breaching humpback whale lifted them out of the water.

The translated Spanish caption of the YouTube video reads:

an incredible evening, lots of sun, kayaking and whale watching. As we watched from the top of the kayak, if one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and we lifted the boat twice!! terrible, everything in this video!

“Terrible” must be sarcastic, because this is awesome.

This is not a humpback whale, these are southern right whales. Humpbacks have much longer pectoral fins.
