PUERTO MADRYN,   Argentina – Everyone has told a whopper of a fish story at some point in their lives.

But two kayakers in Argentina have a whale of a story to tell, literally.

The two kayakers posted a video to YouTube showing them paddling through a marine sanctuary near Puerto Madryn.

Initially in the distance a pod of southern right whales can be seen breaching and blowing mist from their blow holes.

The kayakers can be seen paddling toward the whales when suddenly one of the whales surfaces right beneath them.

One of the kayakers can be heard on the video yelling in Spanish, “We’re on top of the whale!  We’re on top of the whale!”
