Excellent PJ.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

We've had the wondrous pleasure of being that close to wild whales but have never taken any useful photos. Well done, super photos and thank you for sharing :grin:

I had to sell that camera when times were tough, a shame.

Great pics PJ. I so wish i didn't get sea sick and go out there and see those wonderful creatures. They say you never really know how big they really are till you seen them up close like that.

You have just convinced me that I need to go back up there again this year.

Thanks for the photos. By the way, what was the camera?

Wonderful photos PJ.... Hervey Bay is one spot on the top of our list to go to when the kids leave home and we travel Oz.

They are magnificent creatures!!!
