Paddle Boarders Witness Close-Up Whale Breach in Hawaii
On February 17, Kathy Daly and some friends were enjoying a day of paddle boarding off the coast of Kailua Bay in Hawaii when they were surprised by multiple whales breaching the water only a few yards away from them.Daly told Storyful she and her friends had seen the whales earlier in the day and decided to “hang out and see where the whales were going.” It was definitely worth the wait.
Moments later, a whale breached about 50 yards away from the group and Daly took out her phone to film it.
Although she did not capture the first whale, she was able to record the second and third whale as they breached the water and gave the paddle boarders a show they will not forget.
