A pair of kayakers were treated to the surprise of their lives last weekend when a pair of whales breached just yards from their boat, off the coast of New South Wales, Australia.
Dylan Garft and Ben Gordon had only just turned on their GoPro when the massive creatures turned up out of the water near them:
"(The whales) completely snuck up on us," Garft told HuffPost. "We had ben watching a small pod of dolphins... As soon as we turned the camera on, we got a pretty large surprise!"
At least the whale didn't land directly on top of them, as was the case last month when a humpback whale nearly crushed two kayakers in California.
These are the tourist moments you just can't plan.
