After journeying for about an hour we hove too, and watched and waited, after about 5 minutes we heard the unmistakable sound of a whale blowing air from it's spout. a quick look to starboard and we just saw the tail fluke disappear into the sea.
Our guide told us that the whale would dive for about 6 to 8 minutes and that we should look all around the boat for any signs of it surfacing.
Soon we were watching and seeing the whale every 6 to 8 minutes, quick focusing and Dan managed to get this image.
