While whale watching off the coast of California, a huge humback whale decided to give the kayakers a good close look at what a "full breach' is. Although from this camera angle it looks like the whale landed on the kayak, it actually just missed and caused the kayak to tip over. No one was injured, but I bet they were a bit rattled!

There are several whale watching tours in Maine you can take this summer. It's a lot safer than this one, and it's a great  adventure for friends visiting from out of state.
