Kayaking with Redondo Beach Blue Whales, with underwater footage and Lunge feeding GoPro

From 10/8/2011. A whale lunge feeding right next to the Kayak, plus some underwater footage. While the lunge feed was heart pounding excitement, I found that seeing one undewater was relaxing and peaceful. Was an awesome day!!! Shot with GoPro 1080 w/ mako flat lens. See the lunge feed in slow motion at: youtu.be Some of our underwater photography can be seen at www.ricksusie.com I’d like to take a moment to state that I don’t recommend, endorse or in any way want to encourage anyone to try and swim with these whales. The whales are large unpredictable animals and potentially dangerous. I’ve talked to the NOAA and would like to share these Whale Watching Guidelines from the NOAA site: swr.nmfs.noaa.gov

    I would have turned that Kayak around the minute I first saw the whale . That is truly amazing , but I’d be way too much of a whimp to do what you did .

    @cassssspar Japanese dont hunt Blue Whales. They mostly hunt Minke whales which are a very common and not endangered species. (although thats still not a good reason to kill them)

    @zahgaan That Blue Whale is less dangerous then a common house cat. As long as literly dont “swim in front of it” you should be fine.

    How magical. I can’t imagine being next to a Blue whale, although, I did get the opportunity to touch a baby Humpback whale in Mexico many years ago on a Lindblad Expeditions cruise. That being said, the baby whale was trying to knock the Zodiac over.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us. As a whale lover and someone who considered being a meteorologist because I loved whales so much, this was a beautiful inspiring video. Thank you!

    I’ve seen some wildlife from surfling and would love to see a blue whale in person like this.. Yet I think I’d still crap myself if it happened to me.
