Don't worry; they're OK.

Whoever said whale watching was boring? Pretty much everyone, actually. But that's only true if your life isn't in danger.

This video was taken on an 8 a.m. Sanctuary Cruises whale tour in Monterey Bay, California. A passenger named Larry Plants (lol) was filming some nearby whale breaches when one clumsy cetacean breached right on top of a tandem kayak. There was a terrifying moment when it wasn't clear if the two passengers had been crushed to death, but then it turned out they had escaped unflattened.

Why are they smiling?

That's a relief. It would be terrible if this turned out like the Free Willy director's cut.
