Curious southern right whale nudges paddleboarder in Argentina – video

A rare encounter was caught on video at Puerto Madryn, Argentina when a southern rIght whale seemingly plays with a woman on a paddleboard and pushes the board gently forward, observing its movement as it swims directly beneath it.

“They are rare moments, it is something that is prohibited,” said Oscar Comes, a local water-sports tourism operator. “It isn’t like you can go in a kayak, standup board, a boat, or whatever, to look for the animal.”
