(WVUE) -

Two adventurous kayakers in Argentina experienced the thrill of a lifetime following an encounter with a pod of massive whales.

The video was taken somewhere off the coast of Puerto Madryn, Argentina. As the kayakers approached the whales, one of them lifted the kayakers out of the water.

The video, uploaded to YouTube by user gisela6652, roughly translates to: "As we watched from the top of the kayak, one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and lifted the boat twice!"

The video surfaced on Reddit Tuesday. Since the video was posted to YouTube on Sunday, it has received over 2 million views.
