Whale breaks surface of water for game of peek-a-boo with baby caught on camera

October 15th, 2020

When you think of whales, you immediately envision massive creatures that live in the ocean. You probably also realize that while some people have had positive encounters with them, they aren’t something to mess around with. But one family had an unbelievable experience that was 100 percent positive.

A beautiful day

A family uploaded a video that’s now gone viral and for a good reason. It shows a father holding his small child while looking out over the water. Initially, it doesn’t appear as though much is happening but as the 70,000 people who’ve viewed it can attest to, an ordinary day turned into a magical one.

Something’s in the water

As the video continues to play, you spot some movement in the water. At first, it looks like a small whirlpool. But as quickly as it appeared, it disappeared.

Now, it’s gone

Whatever was making the water move quickly vanishes. In the meantime, the father’s still holding his child. They wait to see if it’ll start again.

And there it goes

But this time, instead of being 50 feet from the boat, it’s directly below the man and his infant. At first, the water only moves slightly. Then, they discover what the mysterious thing in the water is.

It’s a whale

Both the father and the baby are surprised. That wasn’t what they expected at all, or at least the dad didn’t. But there it was as big as day…a whale. And this thing wasn’t small.

An awesome moment

In the blink of an eye, the whale lifts its head above the water. The father and child just stare. This is such a rare event. The baby doesn’t know it now but years later when seeing the video, she’ll understand just how special this moment was.

Down it goes

Unfortunately, the whale didn’t stay above water very long. In no time, it had pulled back below the surface. But that’s when this dad realized the creature was playing. By bobbing its head up and down, this whale was playing peek a boo with his baby.

This is unbelievable

Not only was the whale playing with the baby but each time its head surfaced, the creature was closer to the boat. At one point, the father looks up at his friends in complete shock. For whatever reason, this mammal and child made a connection.

This goes on for quite some time

As the whale repeatedly surfaces and then disappears, the baby doesn’t take her eyes off of it. She might not understand what’s going on yet she’s completely mesmerized. As for the dad, he’s in awe.

The final surface

One more time, the whale appears. The dad lifts his child a little higher to ensure she gets a great view. Then suddenly, the game of peek a boo is over. We’re sure they wished this had lasted a lot longer but the fact they have a video of this experience means it’ll go on for a lifetime.
