mise: "...I was freaked out when a friend told me a seal came up beside her dad while he was swimming in the ocean. "

When my dad was training for a "big swim" he was often in the waters around here, ocean waters. We've quite a few snaps of him being "stalked" by seals. They're fed all through the year, and anything and anyone in the water is automatically a source of food. Not that they would, or have, harmed swimmers, just they expect to be thrown food.
They often come into the harbour for fish offcuts from the fishing boats upon landing. If you swim around the harbours here, you're also likely to get stalked by Swans too.

But with a whale, that would be terrifying, but incredibly humbling to have happen.

I love whales so much :) And I agree with MattPrince that he was getting in the way of her feeding process (they do this cool bubble net tornado thing that rounds up the krill and then they gulp them up with their big ol' mouths.. it's pretty much the coolest).

So yep, this bro should take his midlife crisis elsewhere.

The largest animal to ever live on this planet. The true world traveler. I would like to see them but I'll leave em be. There are too many bothering them . Thanks for sharing the recording.

F*cking hell, and I was freaked out when a friend told me a seal came up beside her dad while he was swimming in the ocean.

I actually have no idea how I would react in this situation.

I'd like to point out that he contravened most whale watching guidelines (angle of approach, distance etc) and that he was technically harassing a feeding animal (i've seen this with whale sharks with a horde of boats and divers and its f**king lame)

..but he was one kayak, and if it was narked the big blue could have left him for dead... So I'm mostly just *jealous*

Awesome, largest animals on the planet and as powerful as they are, they appear as tame as puppy dogs.

I do that, but for some reason all of my animals are covered in oil.

Oh no, drat that. I'd just flop over and die right there on the spot. I can't even stand to see tiny fish floating around in the water near me.

One of a thousand reasons to love southern California.
Not that I've done that, paddling the boats too much work!

Link: Kayaking With Redondo Beach Blue Whales [Rate Link] - I think I can safely say, if this happened to be while I was out kayaking, minding my own business, I'd shart my pants.
