Viviana Guzman often plays her flute when she paddleboards off the coast of California, but she doesn’t normally have an audience. Watch what happens when a whale hears her playing in the video below.
“When I screamed, it turned away from me. It surprised me, and I surprised it,” she told ABC News. “It could have totally toppled me, but he just gently went away, went under the water.”
“I feel like they’re curious about the flutes and they come towards me,” she said. “I started my usual playing, and all of a sudden one came really, really close to me.”
Whales are such beautiful and amazing creatures. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to have this experience.
