So here’s a blog about the time that I rode inside a Killer Whale in the River Thames… Nope you’re not reading that wrong. That is a real sentence I just wrote and it was just as bizarre and completely awesome as it sounds! The company ‘Predator Adventures‘ has recently landed at Royal Victoria Docks in East London. It’s the perfect activity for the adrenaline junkie that doesn’t want to leave the capital, but wants to try something a little different.
Somewhere between a whale, a submarine, a jet ski, and a fighter jet, is where you’ll find the Killer Whale Seabreacher Watercraft. Designed in California by two friends, Seabreacher Watercrafts come in a range of animals, with Predator Adventures having the Killer Whale model. The machines combine the adrenaline rush of an extreme sport (top speeds 50mph above the water and 25mph under the water) but with the added fun of being able to go under the water (whilst staying dry)… Predator Adventures uses these wonderfully unique machines for their unusual water adventures in the River Thames (and you’ll be pleased to hear the water was a lot cleaner, and greener than expected).
Now here are the cold, hard, facts for those of you that curious about what actually happens when you’re inside the, er, whale…

p.s. if you’re not local to, or visiting London anytime soon… There are also Seabreacher Watercraft experiences with other companies in different countries around the world, including: New Zealand (Queenstown), Mexico (Cancun), Holland (Rotterdam), and Dubai…
For now I’ll leave you with some delightful unedited screenshots from my my GoPro that was inside the whale filming me. It’s a gorgeous angle, and uses a fish eye lens, so please bear that in mind… The plan is to chop the 10 minute video up into something that lasts less than 2 mins and shows how much fun I was having. Would anyone watch that? Let me know in the comments/or over on twitter @luisachristie
