Unbelievable footage captures the moment a gray whale showed up near a beach in Laguna Beach, California.
It appears from the video that most of the swimmers were unaware of the massive creature swimming just beneath them.
The footage was captured via drone by wildlife photographer Mark Girardeau on August 8th, 2017. He described the sighting: “A gray whale showed up inside Dana Point Harbor today and was lost inside for a couple hours, after it exited the harbor, it continued up the coast towards Alaska where I got this video in front of Montage Hotel near Aliso Beach in Laguna Beach, California. The rest of the migrating gray whales are feeding right now up North in Alaskan waters.”
In another amazing sighting, a young gray whale swam below a group of surfers at another South California beach. Watch the video below:
