Massive Whale Swallows Up Two Kayakers In Wild Viral Video From California

Whale swallows kayakers

Now that summer has officially kicked into full gear, and vacation to the beach is in the very near future, I’ve found myself itching to get out in the water.

However, I come across videos like this, and I realize that I might just keep my a** on the beach and get absolutely cooked by the sun while slamming as many beers possible.

Between sharks, jellyfish, sting rays, or just getting tore up by the coral, there was already enough to worry about… now I have to worry about getting swallowed up by a whale? Like Jonah? Nah…

This has to be one of the craziest wildlife videos I’ve ever seen, and I see dozens every day. But more importantly folks, this is why the ocean scares the hell out of me.

A viral video from a couple years ago is once again circling the internet featuring a group of kayakers who 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 who were out on the water stand up paddleboarding.

With one gulp, the whale picks their kayak up and the boat falls down into the whale’s mouth and he drops back into the water. Lucky for them, the kayak slips out back to the surface and he spits out the two women aboard.

Can you imagine witnessing this? What do you even do?  Who do you call?

“911, yeah… a whale just swallowed two people…”

This just doesn’t happen…

Everyone was fine following the incident, and no injuries were reported, but talk about a living through an actual nightmare.

Watch out for those human-swallowing whales out there, people… head on a swivel in the ocean.

Kayaker Is Charged By Alligator & Knocked 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…

Great White Shark Chases Kayak Fisherman


That’s not the thing you want to have curious in you when you’re out in a kayak.

Great white sharks are one of the most fascinating and feared predators in the ocean. Adult great white sharks can grow up to 20 feet in length and weigh over 4,000 pounds. Great white sharks have a streamlined and powerful body shape that allows them to move quickly through the water.

Apex predators, they are at the top of the food chain in the ocean. They have powerful jaws and sharp teeth that allow them to easily tear through the flesh of their prey. Great white sharks are known to feed on a variety of animals, including fish, sea turtles, seals and even other sharks.

Great white sharks are some of the fastest swimmers in the ocean, capable of reaching speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. They use their powerful tail fin to propel themselves through the water, and their streamlined body shape helps them to move quickly and efficiently.

Naturally, most people don’t want this fish checking them out when they are sitting in a small piece of plastic. But, it’s the risk of the ocean sometimes.

This fella was out on the ocean for a kayak fish somewhere in Australia when a great white circled him and when he tried to move away it just kept following him. The man captured a video as he was trying to escape.

“It’s chasing me, it’s chasing me!”

The man yells out to his friend as he quickly paddles away. You can see the shark fin sticking out the water trailing behind him.

The fisherman dunks his GoPro camera in the water and you can see the shark follows him a bit but ultimately, he is alright.

That would get the heart pumping though… what a beast.

California Fisherman Watches Great White Shark Circle 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.
