Daughters Panic as Two Whales Swim Shockingly Close to Her Canoe During Outing With Her Dad

YouTube

A father-daughter canoe outing led to an amazingly close brush with nature when two large whales swam up right next to them to play — and immediately sent the daughter into a panic.

The three-minute video, uploaded to YouTube in September, was shot off Fraser Island in Australia and shows the two whales swimming around and under the tiny vessel.

“Don’t knock us over please!” the daughter is heard calling out. And later, “Oh my God daddy, it’s under us!…Dad it’s gonna hit us!”
