A huge whale has spent the afternoon playing with a paddleboarder in Argentina.

A drone photographer captured video of the moment a southern right whale swam up to a paddleboarder and gave the board a push.

Photographer Maxi Jonas posted the video to Twitter showing the southern right whale in Puerto Madryn.

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

Whales are common in Puerto Madryn with the whale watching season going from May through to December. More than 1,600 southern right whales have been spotted near the Puerto Madryn shore so far this year.
