Watch out! Folbots are whale magnets!

I have just got back from a short paddling trip to try out the Kodiak. I was very privileged to enjoy two nights in a row paddling alone with a humpback whale. Here's a short video clip from the first night.

More about the trip and the boat later.

  2. Wow, this is amazing ... but, you must have been scared - haven't you?

  3. Thanks for the comments!

    I'm not sure I was scared as such, more exhilarated. But, I had no idea how the whale would react to my being so close - I think he/she had more control over the situation than I did!
