Paddlers Chased Out of the Water By…Salmon?

The land down under is known for being filled with dangerous creatures of all shapes and sizes. From croc-eating pythons to snake eating spiders, Australia is a scary place when it comes to wildlife. However, there is one animal-or rather fish-that is enough to scare paddlers right out of the water. Salmon.

While that may sound crazy, it’s easy to see why with this wild video. Caroline Bradley, owner of a local SUP shop, took out her camera when thousands of salmon began a feeding frenzy next to the river shore where she was about to begin a SUP lesson. In fact, the hungry salmon made the water so turbulent that Bradley was forced to cancel the remainder of the lesson. It’s a must-see video and certainly one of the more bizarre animal encounters you’ll see.


Watch this paddler come within a few feet of an Orca feeding frenzy.

A delicious salmon recipe perfect for all paddlers.
