So very awesome. Of course they know where you are. They know where the tiniest fish are too. They are marvelous sentient beings who deserve to be honored, not slaughtered.

The video is not available in my location. I will protest and tell the Humpbacks, who will then feel sorry for me and come and give me a live performance. YouTube has some videos there that I can watch.

These whales could kill us SO EASILY....but they don't! If you ever have a chance to visit Baja's San Ignacio Lagoon and see the moms with their calves, PLEASE do it!

I admire the kayakers ability to enjoy and be cool about the awesome and incredible visit by this wonderful whale! I equally admire the gentleness of our intelligent, sentient whales that could take us out in a second but do not. They exhibit trust and curiosity about us as well as being mammals just as we are. We're not so different other than according to man's history with whales where they have been so much kinder to us than we have been of them, and still are. Thank you for sharing this wonderful video!
