Nope, this isn’t a scene out of Free Willy.

It’s actually taking place in the Army Bay, New Zealand, where a kayaker casually jumped out of his vessel to hang out with a curious orca on Monday. Tim Stewart is said daring kayaker, who told the NZ Herald he went down to the ocean after he heard of orca sightings in the area.

Stewart said he wasn’t scared at the start, but noticed the orca had its mouth open when he made his way into the water. “I thought ‘he just wants to play, but I hope he doesn’t drag me down for a play,'” he told the news outlet.
