A group of people who wanted to get close to nature, and possibly some whales, got way more than they bargained for when a humpback whale breached so close to their kayak it wasn't clear if it crushed them to death or missed them.

The good news is the group is okay, and judging from the photos of the aftermath, the people in the kayak were fine and even managed a smile. I think I would require a very stiff drink on dry land after that kind of encounter.
