When two whale watchers heard that southern right whales had been spotted off the coast of Esperance, Australia, they decided to get a closer look.
Jaimen Hudson grabbed his drone and decided to video the encounter while David Price geared up and set off on a paddle board to get up close and personal. Hudson captured the entire event, the two whales very interested in Price. The clear blue waters off the coast clearly show the whales, for moments coming up to the water’s surface just feet from Price’s board.
Hudson spoke to ABC News about their amazing encounter stating, “There was one time when the whales lifted their heads up and looked up over Pricey’s board, they were so inquisitive and wanted to know what he was. The whole time they were very slow-moving and peaceful.”
