Joe Noonan is a dolphin whisperer and nature guide who leads trips around the world. He recently met a humpback whale calf and its mother while kayaking in Hawaii. Joe says whales are often as curious about us as we are about them, and if you stay calm and relaxed, there’s a good chance they may come over to check you out — which they did in this video! You can watch the full video below, or check out Joe Noonan's YouTube for more amazing videos of dolphins and whales.

Next, footage from ViralHog shows two dolphins playing together right next to some kayakers in Florida. Those dolphins put on quite a show while they were splashing around!
