Hi Malcolm! Can you really? That would be great! I'd love to be able to keep this spot, it's so rare to see them. Thank you!

Hi Leanne, I can add your still for you if you want.

Hi Leanne, what a great video & so cool that you had a whale come so close to the boat - I've been whale watching twice but only seen them from a distance.
It's a lovely sunrise too but unfortunately we do need a photo of the whale as we don't allow landscapes on the site. I've asked for some advice on how to get a still from a video if that is possible & will email you with instructions when I get them. In the meantime, were you able to get any photos of the whale at all that you could put up?
