Endangered blue whales, the world's largest animals, are being seen in droves off the northern California coast, lured by an abundance of their favorite food - shrimp-like creatures known as krill. Whale-watching tour operators are reporting a bumper harvest of blue whales, orcas, humpbacks and binocular-toting tourists eager to witness the coastal feeding frenzy.

Imagine paddling around a bay and getting an amazing view of a humpback whale. Not hundreds of feet away, but right next to you.
That's what happened to two people when they got the surprise of a lifetime: a 80,000 pound humpback surfaced then dove under one woman's kayak.
