How not to watch Whales - New Video

Here's a short video from the weekend on how not to watch whales. We were quite a way away and the family decided to swim over and say hi! I was just about to jump in the water and get some underwater footage, luckily my timing was a little out... The footage is a bit average as Brad can't work the focus, also note that this video does include a few swear words, as you will notice!

Roger that BJ, we stayed 50m away and turned off the engine to film it.  Then it happened to swim over to us, wasn't about to start the engine just incase it really did piss it off.  Good lesson learnt, 100m is more suitable!

Thought I was in the boat with hubbie for a minute there, fantastic, would have loved every minute of it.  I get told off if dolphins come near boat in Cockburn Sound, all I hear thats it no F........king squid see what you've done, now we'll have F......king well move,

Fabulous, when they blow air out does it smell of fish like the breath of a seal? just wondering

Cheers fellas, in the sequence just after that you see Brad pan around to me with my underwater housing saying a few thankyous to the man upstairs that I didn't jump in to try and get footage!!!  You can just hear me through the footage say is he still there, that was as I was about to get in!
