Everyone loves summer. It’s a great time for outdoor activities like swimming, biking, hiking, and just spending time out in the sun.
One of the most underrated summer activities, though, is boating in kayaks and canoes.
Most people who kayak and canoe recreationally put the slim boats into lakes or peaceful rivers. If you’re not super-experienced in a small boat, it’s best to practice in calm water.
Some more experienced rowers choose to put the boats directly into the ocean, like this biologist who decided to boat among the sharks.
One of the best reasons to take kayaks and canoes into open waters is to get up close and personal with wild animals, like sharks or dolphins.
In the video below, watch as a woman takes her incredible see-through canoe out into the ocean to get a closer look at some wild dolphins.
Filming from her one-of-a-kind canoe, she zooms in on dolphins jumping in and out of the water, then she decides to paddle closer.
Once the dolphins see her approaching, the curious creatures start interacting with her and the boat, eager to learn more. Many animals would be afraid of the boat, but these dolphins are just intrigued.
Watch the video to see these incredible animals up close! And if you love dolphins, please SHARE this article with your friends and family!
