Those of you that love Kayaking would have seen some amazing sights over the years, although one of them might not be a collision with a humpback whale. Normally, it’s a shark you need to watch out for when in your Kayak and not a 20 ton whale.
You can see a YouTube video below this article that Berthold Hinrichs took when the Humpback whale collided with his Kayak. The trip could have ended very differently, which Hinrichs takes each day at the Gryllefjord in Senja.
Hinrichs told Euro News he must have a “guardian angel” looking after him, but he made a quick getaway after the encounter just to be safe.
The humpback whale was hunting herring at the time, thanks to an increase number in the area at the time of this video being taken.
Do you like to Kayak, and if so have you collided with much in your time?
