Would You Keep Your Cool If This Surfaced in Front of Your Paddle Board?

This California paddle boarder got more up close and personal with a whale than most of us ever will.

California resident Viviana Guzmán says when she plays her flute while paddle boarding, it brings in the whales on California’s Half Moon Bay.

Don’t believe her? Just watch as she has an extreme up-close encounter with a juvenile humpback!

Wow! A lot of people like to go whale watching, but not many get to see a whale that close! Even though she’s been going out into the bay for years while playing her flute, she’s never had an encounter quite like this one.

“In the 20 years I’ve lived on the coast, they’ve never been this close,” she told CNN. “I love going out on my paddle board and I have started taking my flue with me and they seem to like it.”

Who knew whales enjoyed music? Cool encounter and video Guzmán, thanks for sharing it with the world!
