Kayaking with Redondo Beach Blue Whales

A kayaker in Redondo Beach, Southern California posted a YouTube video of an exciting surprise encounter with a blue whale in the open water. He even dives down to get some underwater video with his helmet cam!

Read more on the LATimes blog about his experience, as well as what he discovered afterward: safety guidelines recommended for not scaring whales or accidentally being hurt by them!
