A drone photographer in Argentina got video of a southern right whale swimming up to a paddleboarder and pushing the board.

Photographer Maxi Jonas posted a video to Twitter showing the southern right whale curiously approaching a woman paddleboarding in Puerto Madryn.

The whale gives the paddleboard a push with its fin before tracking the board’s movements while swimming directly under it.

The Puerto Madryn whale watching season starts in May and runs through December. Marcos Grosso, the city’s tourism secretary, said more than 1,600 southern right whales have been spotted near the Puerto Madryn shore so far this year.
