A pair of whale watchers in California were almost swallowed by a humpback whale on Monday, and the internet is going wild.

Julie McSorley and Liz Cottriel were going for an afternoon whale watch just off Avila Beach, located in San Luis Obispo, California. While thinking they were being safe and keeping their distance from the whales, one rocked their kayaks a little too much.

“A large bait ball came up around us followed by two whales which lifted us out of the water and tipped us over,” McSorley wrote on Facebook.

There are videos of the incident circling around both Facebook and YouTube. Another kayaking whale watcher that was a few feet behind McSorely and Cottriel caught it all on video. McSorely also grabbed some footage of her own through her cellphone.

Watch a different angle:

Cottriel told Fox26 News, “I’m thinking to myself, ‘I’m gonna push. Like, I’m gonna push a whale out of the way! It was the weirdest thought. I’m thinking, ‘I’m dead. I’m dead.’ I thought it was gonna land on me,” Cottriel said. “Next thing I know, I’m under water.”

The whale itself wasn’t trying to harm the kayakers, it was just trying to get the bait ball that surrounded the kayakers.

After the wild occurrence in the water, the two paddled their way to shore with all of their belongings they went into the water with. No one was harmed and no damage was done to the kayak.

McSorley said, “I learned I should be much further away,” according to the New York Post.
