From 10/8/2011. A blue whale lunge feeding right next to the Kayak, plus some underwater footage. While the lunge feed was heart pounding excitement, I found that seeing one underwater was relaxing and peaceful. Was an awesome day!!! Shot with GoPro 1080 w/ mako flat lens.
See the lunge feed in slow motion at: http://youtu.be/JaRO3jDzmH0
Some of our underwater photography can be seen at www.ricksusie.com

I'd like to take a moment to state that I don't recommend, endorse or in any way want to encourage anyone to try and swim with these whales. The whales are large unpredictable animals and potentially dangerous. I've talked to the NOAA and would like to share these Whale Watching Guidelines from the NOAA site:
