ESPERANCE, Australia (Oct. 9, 2015) – Sometimes you just can’t find the right words.

Stunning? Breathtaking? Incredible?

All of these probably fit, but they still seem lacking when it comes to this drone footage from Australia that shows a paddleboarder getting up close and personal with a pair of southern right whales. Jaimen Hudson captured this footage with a drone once he sighted the whales.

An acquaintance, Dave Price, is the man on the paddleboard. Hudson described the whales as inquisitive and peaceful during the encounter in which they clearly dwarf Price and get extremely close.

“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,” Hudson told ABC Esperance.
