Two female kayakers on a whale watching expedition off the coast of California were nearly swallowed by a humpback whale. Luckily, neither of them were injured.
The women were surprised because the water was calm, and the whales were pretty far away. But one whale was deep under water and they just happened to be in its path when it surfaced to feed on fish with its jaws wide open. The kayakers are in the middle of a whale feeding ground. Why?
Here's a compilation video from different angles filmed by other kayakers & paddleboarders close by.
