A Kayaker kayaking in the Monterey Bay got up close and personal with a couple of Humpback whales that were breaching the surface while feeding. This is not the first time that these whales have come so close to kayakers however this one was actually caught by a photographer. Paul Schraub was shooting photos for the Santa Cruz Tourism bureau. The photographer didn't even realize there was a kayak in the frame until he got home and saw the pictures later. As for the kayaker he had the sight and ride of his life and he's got picture of it.
Wildlife officials recommend that you don't get this close to the animals in the bay but what do you do when they get this close to you. Well, hopefully if that happens someone will be there to take a picture.
