Kayaking with Redondo Beach Blue Whales, with underwater footage and Lunge feeding GoPro

From 10/8/2011. A blue whale lunge feeding right next to the Kayak, plus some underwater footage. While the lunge feed was heart pounding excitement, I found that seeing one underwater was relaxing and peaceful. Was an awesome day!!! Shot with GoPro 1080 w/ mako flat lens. See the lunge feed in slow motion at: http://youtu.be/JaRO3jDzmH0 Some of our underwater photography can be seen at www.ricksusie.com I'd like to take a moment to state that I don't recommend, endorse or in any way want to encourage anyone to try and swim with these whales. The whales are large unpredictable animals and potentially dangerous. I've talked to the NOAA and would like to share these Whale Watching Guidelines from the NOAA site: http://swr.nmfs.noaa.gov/psd/watching.htm

Great footage! Blue Whales still seem to keep their distance, unlike other whales. You are so lucky to get somewhat of a closeup!!

I think your a little too close Rick. Great footage and must have been awesome but if she had a little one she might have become protective and made mush out of you with a fin or tail slap. But she seems totaly comfortable eating and everything else with you right there

It's absolutely amazing! I would have been totally freaked out by knowing this huge animal is swimming right underneath me...like wow.....they are so huge and so massive and totally beautiful.
And the whale is probably like "Oh look how small it is, this cute little thingy from above" ^o^

U lucky @#$% ... lol sorry i m too excited and jealous that you got such an AWESOME chance to go so fcking close to the majestic blue..
OrionoftheStar - 7 years ago
This is majestic.
I mean, there are plenty of nature documentaries that give you perfect, stable images of whales in really clear water, but the first-person imagery there, right alongside the whale... the sheer immensity of the blue whale is overwhelming.
"Majestic" is often used as a joke, but this is the sort of thing the word was made for.
holy shit, if i were you, i would shit brix

+OrionoftheStar They aren't aggressive but due to their massive size there is still a great deal of risk for people to be this close. Totally worth it for this footage though.
CrazyWharf625 - 6 years ago
+OrionoftheStar nooooooo they're harmless. They don't have teeth. Instead they have bristles to filter feed. sharks are dangerous though
OrionoftheStar - 7 years ago
+Levi Ackerman What? No, of course not. How would they? They're filter feeders, they don't even have teeth. A number of bayleen whales, including blue whales, can actually be friendly.

Although I'm all for experiencing nature and wildlife while kayaking, let's be honest here...you were WAY too close to the whales and should have backed off. Sure it makes for a "cool" video but it was a bad call on your part. Don't be so selfish Rick and give the beautiful animals a little personal space.
Daz Ediss
Daz Ediss - 7 years ago
He wasn't doing any harm you absolute pleb. Just creating some of the best Blue Whale footage that the world has ever seen.

To be honest, this animal weighs upward of 150 tonnes.

If it had so much as given one tail flap, this dude would be history.

The animal was never in any remote danger and judging from my previous experience with whales, they are genuinely intelligent & curious animals. It probably enjoyed the attention.

Meanwhile there are fishermen worldwide who are illegally killing these creatures for profit. Perhaps copy and paste your bullshit verbal attack on some greenpeace videos.

Thank you for posting the guidelines too! I once followed the guidelines that told me not to go closer than 400meters to a bunch of beluga whales. But they did not read the rule and came to check me out :-) Looking into the eyes of a whale is an incredible thing. The guidelines should also mention to go to the restroom before doing this, otherwise your pants might be ruined :-)

The loud water splashing sounds makes this video seem very amateurish, but that is a good thing for it shows others can do it too. I am not sure what other commentators are so scared about. As I understand, baleen whales are among the most gentle animals on the Earth and unless you are krill offer little danger.

Does everyone fully comprehend that a Blue Whale is the largest animal (known to science) thats ever lived, even bigger than any Dinosaur. There is a risk involved kayaking and swimming with them, but I would give anything to do so. One of God's greatest creations.

I live in Redondo Beach and blue whales do go there from time to time. I was out wind surfing I felt a huge vibration and looked behind me and saw two blues whales. One came out of the water... scared the living shit out of me. But saw he was just passing by... I wish I caught that on camera cause it was the most amazing thing ever. In real life being next to one of these things makes you feel so tiny... its amazing!

I would've gotten as much distance between me and it as possible lol XD, kudos to you for having the nerves to stay and enjoy this beautiful sight. Not say that it would've attacked me btw, but those animals are BIG and getting knocked off of a kayak is not a favorite activity of mine.

I have to agree with @pocochoir on this. It is stressful and potentially hurtful to chase the whale like this. You shouldn't approach the whale, but instead let it come to you in its on pace. I don't deny this being an amazing video, but if we made everything thrilling legal the world wouldn't be a good place. Show the nature some respect.

This video is a blatant example of chasing whales - which is illegal throughout North America. NO one is allowed to move their vessel CLOSER to a whale. If one breaches nearby, that's up to the whale. This guy is clearly paddling TOWARD the whales and not watching in a benign manner. Shame on you for showing it. By showing it you are making it OKAY for others to do the same.

While this is surely an awesome experience, it is highly dangerous to be that close. Those whales are massive and powerful and could easily (and accidentally) kill someone with a stroke of their tail. Marine mammal regulations protect people as much as they protect whales. At least they are in kayaks, not boats with motors that could injure the whales.
stephy1771 - 10 years ago
@D2ooSAX Blue whales eat krill, not fish. People are responsible for declining fish populations because we've been overfishing (taking too many fish) for decades. The whales that DO eat fish do not eat nearly enough to impact fish populations in the way that humans do. Many marine mammal species are now threatened because their food sources (small fish) have declined due to human overfishing.

HOw do you know if they were in touble? You do not because you forgot about her? As a kayaker in alaska, I know about leaving your partner or being out of communication with them. You got an epic video for sure. But, you broke the cardinal rule of safety in kayaking with a partner... Not important, watch the vid!

I have been kayaking for over 20 years with Gray, Humpback, Killer (Orcas) and a few times with Blue whales. I have led guided kayak tours to watch whales. This Guy is getting way too close.

From the MMPA: "Level B Harassment means any act of pursuit, torment, or annoyance which has the potential to disturb a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild by causing disruption of behavioral patterns, including, but not limited to, migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, or sheltering but which does not have the potential to injure a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild." Cool video, that whale was feeding, thus your pursuit could be considered harassment.
ChappyBT - 10 years ago
@cacamonster91st True, but surprisingly an occurrence that is extremely rare! The whales have a very good sense of what is around them, and an even better sense of what their flukes may hit. I've seen divers within feet of large whales, and the whales invariably can stop short of hitting any of them. You can even see that they shorten their stroke so as not to hit them...really amazing creatures!
ChappyBT - 10 years ago
@BeachKeever The whale was feeding, it's easy to see if you know what you're looking at. In one shot it clearly shows the whale's throat grooves were heavily expanded, and water was visible being forced thru the baleen.

@The51Bubs51 I believe there is a law your not supposed to approach whales this close due to harm that can be cause to yourself or possibly the whale, research it you will find something along those lines
