Whale of a surprise
NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A surfer and some kayakers have an amazing encounter with two large whales, and it's all caught on video.
It happened just off the wharf in Santa Cruz, California.
A surfer was sitting on her board talking to the kayakers when the whales burst out of the water, just a few feet away.
The whales emerged with their mouths wide open, then sank back below the surface.
Barbara Roettger, the woman shooting the video, was also very close to the action.
