Kayak Meets a Huge Basking Shark

That's definitely a basking shark - at 0:24 you can see it with its mouth open, filter-feeding. Also, as a rough gauge of size, if the man in the kayak is 180cm, then the kayak is probably around 3m, making the shark 6-8m in length, which would be record-setting for a great white. It's getting close to the recorded maximums for a basking shark, even - that's a large mature adult.

I know they're harmless to humans but if I encountered one I'd be scared shitless because of how large they are.
Would have the same reaction to whales and Orcas.

They probably thought it was a real shark. Sense humans I think are kown to sharks as "scary" sea creatures that eat humans. Because they said "Look out!" "Look out!!". But that's just my hypothesis.

 "Yeah a whale can't hurt a human. Idiot"

First off, whale shark, not whale. That aside, saying an animal as big as a bus and weighing up to 20 tons can't harm a human is the idiotic thing. There will always be the chance of such a huge animal accidentally smacking some moron diver with a tail, brushing up against a boat out of curiosity and turning it over, who knows. These are wild animals and there will always be some measure of unpredictability associated with them.

Believing they will always be docile, will continue swimming a certain path, whatever, and thinking you are perfectly safe is the moronic thing to do. It's one of the reasons you should stay away from whales (yes, actual whales this time). They may be "gentle giants", but every great once in a while something goes wrong.

They have no idea if it's harmless. Some of them could... I'm not sure. They said the name yes, but still. There not sure and it's a act of being scare also.
