Imagine you’re enjoying a beautiful kayaking trip on the waters of northern Norway, when you’re suddenly surrounded by humpback whales. And one is actually under your boat.
That’s what happened to Berthold Hinrichs on Jan. 10. The video of his incredible encounter has quickly gone viral.
"They were hunting herring and they are very careful not to harm you… one humpback came up just beside me… [then] I was completely on the back of him," Hinrichs said, according to People.
Humpback whales, which are endangered, can weigh up to 40 tons and measure 48 to 62 feet long.
