The pair got ever closer to the whales until, all of a sudden, one of the creatures arched its back and lifted the kayakers into the air.

An incredible evening, lots of sun, kayaking and whale watching.

As we watched from the kayak, one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and lifted the boat twice!!
