Whale can’t resist woman playing violin in the middle of the ocean

October 29th, 2020

If you spend any time watching videos of animals online, you’ve likely seen some incredible things. For instance, one video showed donkeys braying along with their owner as he sang. Then there’s one of a horse who rocked out to a Fleetwood Mac song blaring from a car on the side of the road. Now, another video has taken over the internet.

This one involves a whale

In case you don’t know, whales are highly intelligent creatures. And unlike what some individuals think, they’re often friendly to people. But as one video shows, there’s a lot more to these mammals than meets the eye.

A fantastic story

After uploading a video of what happened to social media, it quickly took off. As of today, it’s been viewed well over two million times. And after you see it for yourself, you’ll better understand why it went viral.

Beautiful music

At the start of the video, you see a woman standing on a boat. In her arms and hands are a violin and bow. Initially, it looks as though she’s taking advantage of a gorgeous environment to produce music. But then, you see something off in the distance.

It’s a whale

If you look closely, you can barely make out the dark figure of a single whale. Rather than be spooked, this incredible creature prefers to stick around. For whatever reason, it finds the music to be soothing.

Then, she stops playing

For a short time, it appears the whale lost interest. Its shape seems to be getting further and further away from the boat. So, thinking that’s what’s happening, the woman stops playing the violin. But then, something extraordinary occurs.

Super close

All of the sudden, the whale is super close to the boat. How it got there so quickly no one knows. But this magnificent creature decided it wasn’t done listening to the music and instead, it wanted a closer seat to the action, so to speak.

Gathering around

At that point, other people on board the boat head to the rail to get a close-up view of the whale. One man whips out his cell phone to start recording. In the meantime, the woman again begins to play her violin. The encounter is truly mesmerizing.

Floating in the water

Due to the massive size of whales, they usually produce quite a bit of splashing. Even if they’re trying to remain calm, the water typically moves a lot. But not in this case. Instead, the whale quietly floats alongside the boat as the woman continues to play.

Two theories

People have two theories as to why the whale stuck around. First, they’re very curious and often love to interact with humans. Second, the sound of the violin is reminiscent of the noise that whales make. So, it could be that this creature felt a special connection to the music on a personal level.

Pure heaven

That’s what these boaters experienced for nearly two and a half minutes. Eventually, the whale begins to swim away. But one thing’s for sure. These folks will never forget this very special day.
