59 seconds in the fun begins. I admire the adventure of kayaking in the ocean but, I prefer a bigger boat-preferably ‘navy carrier’ size. I have had the pleasure of whale watching off the coast of California a couple of years ago and I was lucky to actually see a pod of whales gliding on top of calm clear ocean surface. It was an unforgettable feeling. Watching these beautiful animals move effortlessly through the water, made me feel a little closer to nature. But, as I watched from the boat-with the big motor, I felt small and vulnerable next to these mammoth mammals. I was giddy-I screamed with joy watching them pass all around the boat and I wanted to jump on their back and take a ride to the bottom of the ocean. But, then I realized I breathe air AND I signed the release form that stated if I fell overboard-the boat owner would not be held liable. So we made our way back to dry land and air breathing mammals with 2 feet.
Have you ever gone whale watching? Would you rather watch them from a kayak or navy carrier? And, would you jump in with them?
