A couple of people ocean kayaking were taking advantage of some great weather and calm water to do some whale watching when they got more of a ride than they were expecting.

Once the kayak was beached on the whale, the two people were left with the decision to try to push off and risk tipping the kayak and ending up in the water with these enormous mammals or, hope the whale submerged leaving the kayak upright in the water.

The whale let them down easy, but not after giving the kayaking pair both a frightening and and exhilarating experience.
