The pair were out on the water near Moss Landing, California, over the weekend taking in the sights of a group of humpback whales feeding nearby when things took a rather dangerous turn. Oblivious, perhaps, to the kayak and its comparatively dinky passengers, one of the massive marine mammals decided to breach at that exact spot - raining his blubbery body down upon them.
Incredibly, no one was injured.
According to Sanctuary Cruises whale watching operator Michael Sack, who happened to be out on the water that day, the airborne humpback didn't hit either of the humans in the kayak directly. Thankfully, the extremely lucky pair were able to swim away after the incident without apparent injury, though their boat had gotten a bit bent out of shape from the blow.
