Just outside the harbour in Moss Landing, two kayakers on a tandam kayak were almost crushed to death by a massive, near full-size humpback whale.
The video was shot by Sanctuary Cruises passenger Larry Plants.
New reports from NBC Bay Area are that the two kayakers narrowly missed the whale but were knocked into the water. Both had life jackets and were aided by other kayaker to safety. It seems this was a very lucky escape.
