    Thursday, July 24, 2014, 9:08 - Talk about a dangerous, but unforgettable encounter with some large and gentle whales in Argentina.

    "An incredible evening, lots of sun, kayaking and whale watching," says the YouTube description. "As we watched from the top of the kayak, one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and we lifted the boat twice!!"

    The kayakers remained completely calm as the whale lifted them out of the water near Puerto Madryn.

    Experts say the whales in the region are "famously boat friendly and curious toward humans." They also help support a thriving commercial whale-watching industry.
