This Santa Cruz woman was almost on the lunch menu when two giant humpback whales emerged from the water right next to her. Luckily nobody was hurt, but the woman and a few lucky kayakers were able to witness an incredible view of one of nature's most beautiful creatures. The whales have been feeding off of a large group of anchovies that flocked to the Santa Cruz coast. This created a flurry of whale sightings in the area as the behemoths gathered to feast.

Although nobody was hurt in this sighting, whales have been known to injure people on occasion. In 2013, a boater was injured when his boat collided with a humpback whale in British Colombia. Thankfully everybody in the video below walked away without injury, but they did get a memory they'll likely never forget.
