California Fisherman Captures Frightening Footage Of Great White Shark Circling His Kayak

This is a moment where I would simply have a heart attack and die.

We’ve all seen the videos, pictures, or even experienced it ourselves. A shark of some kind gets uncomfortably close to somebody, and they either swim away and don’t want to be bothered, or they go ape shit and attack the person.

Here we have one of those “too close for comfort” moments, where a massive Great White shark approaches a fishermen on his kayak, and circles around it for a few minutes.

Just put yourself in those fisherman’s shoes.

You’re hopelessly sitting in your kayak, and one of the most dangerous creatures in all of the ocean begins to swim right underneath you, and all you can do is wait around and hope it leaves.

That’s a situation I pray that I never get in.

It was all caught on a GoPro in some wild footage.

The fisherman tells the tale in the caption:

“I was catching bait when a large Great White Shark swam under my kayak. It circled me for 2 minutes, then swam away peacefully. One of the best experiences of my life.”

Excuse me, best experiences of your life?

More power to ya, my guy, because I would be absolutely mortified.

But hey, to each their own I guess.

Paddleboarder Captures Wild Video Of Whale Swallowing Two Kayakers In California

What in the great blue ocean…

This has to be some of the craziest stuff I’ve ever laid eyes on., but more importantly folks, this is why the ocean scares the life out of me.

It probably all started with some innocent fun as a group of kayakers were out for a paddle near Avila Beach, California, when they notice a whale surfacing and make their way closer for a better view.

Bad idea…

This video comes with angles from two different people out on the water and clearly, they knew the whale was around them. They certainly never would have expected this to happen.

As the kayakers float around looking into the water to lay eyes in the beast of a whale you begin to see it surface right by a pair of kayakers in one boat.

All in one motion the whale picks their kayak up as the fall directly into the whale’s mouth. He pulls them under water as he closes his mouth.

Holy… talk about an adrenaline rush you were not expecting. And what are you supposed to do if you’re witnessing this? Swim after the whale?

This just doesn’t happen…

The kayakers get spit back out and the whale goes along on its merry way. Everyone was fine following the incident, and no injuries were reported, but talk about a living nightmare.

Watch out for those human-swallowing whale out there folks…

Alligator Knocks Kayaker Into North Carolina River

Oh, hell no…

Look, I don’t spend much time out kayaking through the coastal rivers of North Carolina, but after this, I don’t really plan to.

Experienced kayaker Peter Joyce was out paddling down the Waccamaw River recently when out of nowhere, his kayak was charged by a hungry gator.

The gator hit so hard that it knocked the kayak over, except Joyce was able to grab hold of a branch to keep it from completely tipping upside down.

He shared his experience with WECT:

“I thought I heard a fish jump to my left, turned out not to be a fish. About three feet from the kayak I made out the head of the gator and that was it, I had no time to react.

My mind was playing catch-up at that point. Basically, when I made out the head of the gator towards the front end of the kayak it was kind of just a state of shock.

As soon as it hit the kayak and I went what just happened? If it hit and there was nothing to grab on the right side of me, I would have inverted… It could’ve been a lot worse.”

Just the eerie calm of the river prior to the attack was enough to give me the willies.

And props to Joyce for having the stone to paddle his way into the gator’s kitchen.

As for me, I’m gonna stay over here on dry land…
