Wow, sounds like a great experience - and great pics to prove it!  How close were you able to get to them and what lens were you using for those shots?

 

Thanks,

Adrian

THE WHALES COME VERY CLOSE TO POINT WHERE YOU THINK THEY WILL BUMP INTO YOU, AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU CAN DO A SCUBA DIVE ON A REEF WHERE YOU HOVER AT 15 METRES AND LISTEN TO SEVERAL WHALES SINGING. AMAZING SOUND. THE LENS WAS A 8/15 FISHEYE AND 16/35 BOTH CANON
