Rare: Beautiful Whale Encounter with Paddle Boarder Captured Using Drone

Amazing! Jaimen Hudson, who flew his remote-controlled drone after learning about whales frolicking in the area, took this incredible footage of two whales and a paddle boarder captured off the Esperance coast in Australia, and the video has since gone viral...

What happened next he describes as perfect timing. 
"I set up my equipment on the footpath and flew the drone out," Jaimen explains. 
"Dave Price who lives close by, was just making his way over to the whales on his stand-up paddle board and they were really inquisitive and came over to meet him."

The water is like glass and the two whales are humongous in comparison to Dave on his board.

At times the whales get so close to him, that it's almost uncomfortable to watch.

"There was one time when the whales lifted their heads up looked up over Pricey's board, they were so inquisitive and wanted to know what he was,

"I don't think it was dangerous, the whales moved to where he was and the whole time they were very slow moving and peaceful," Jaimen said.
