Whales meet paddle boarder

Video of the week: Drone footage reveals beautiful moment whales meet paddle boarder

As far as whale sightings go this has to be up there with one of the most spectacular encounters we’ve ever seen. David Price was stand-up paddle boarding off the coast of Esperance, Australia, only to be approached by two curious southern right whales.

Fortunately for him, and all of us, a local named Jaimen Hudson noticed the incredible encounter from the shore and launched his drone to film the experience from above.

The result? Some truly breathtaking footage showing how spectacular these whales really are. Watch the video below and let us know what you think!
