We think a whale encounter is on everyone's bucket list and Nick Worthington now gets to draw a checkmark inside his box. Somewhere in the waters between California and Catalina Island, a pod of dolphins leaps through the air but friends, this isn't the main performance. A large whale waits for its big debut before finally coming up for air... RIGHT. NEXT. TO. THE. BOAT.
Even if you're familiar with the ocean, it can straight up outsmart you.
Experienced kayaker, William Swann was out fishing for bonito fish off Padre Island, Texas when someone else got to his catch before he could. While reeling in his line, a shark decided to take a snack for the road but was considerate enough to leave William half of the fish. Gee, thanks.
