Even when you go sightseeing at "special sites", there's no guarantee any ocean friends will actually show up. But if they do, everyone's hoping for a jaw-dropping friendly seal pup and whale meet-and-greets like these kayakers on Wildcoast Adventures and Kelp Reef Adventures tours in British Columbia.
After brushing by several adorably curious seal pups, they spot a mom humpback whale and her calf way off in the distance. It's a great show until both dramatically disappear under the water. Just seconds later, these folks find themselves with front row seats in the wildest splash zone ever!
