Paddle boarders close encounter with the largest animal in the world
I recently captured this footage of Blue Whales from my paddle board with my GoPro. I was about 2 miles off the coast of Laguna Beach CA. This is some of the rarest footage you'll ever see of these mystical, sublime creatures. Watch at 2:00, 3:36 and 5:04 in as I put the camera underwater. Blue whales are the largest animals in the world… they are up to 100 feet long, twice the size of the biggest dinosaurs.
We used to have appx 300,000 blue whales on the planet and tragically due to humans killing them only 8,000 still exist. I hope my videos spread love and awareness for these sacred, mystical beings.
