VIDEO: Calving Glacier Nearly Blows Alaskan Kayaker Overboard

By

If you go kayaking in Alaska trying to witness a calving glacier you might get more than you bargained for. Thankfully this dude wasn’t blown off his boat into the frigid waters and came away with some incredible footage. This was shot on August 10th at Spencer Glacier in Alaska:

“I went for an overnight camping and kayak trip to Spencer Glacier in Alaska. After setting up camp he hit the lake for some beautiful kayaking. Once we approached the glacier we started hearing calving not far off. So we paddled over to investigate the noise. After determining where the action was happening, we set up right in front of the glacier to watch the show. Not long after getting there a glacial bridge collapsed with a massive splash of water and ice chunks. Followed by a huge wave that forced us to retreat. I managed to turn my camera backward to catch the glacier rising up out of the water. We luckily were not hurt and made it back to camp safely.”
