Coming into Banderas Bay, we saw a bunch of whales out feeding. This is a big whale migratory route so we see them quite often – usually it is just a hump, fluke or spout off in the distance. This time they came close enough that I had to throw the boat in reverse to avoid getting too close to them.
Boats have been damaged by whales bumping or rubbing up against them so we wanted to avoid that. So the video is not the best but it was pretty cool to see them in person. Enlarge the video with the bottom right button for best viewing.
