Today just when lunch was over for my shift, someone came down to the messroom and said that there were a couple of whales really close by. So I took my cup of coffee, fetched a jacket and went up to see if it was possible to get a glimpse of them.
There were two humpback whales and a playful sealion maybe 25 yards away from the ship.
I managed to get a picture and a decent video of one of the whales and the sealion sort of photobombed all the videos I tried to take. :-)
It is awe-inspiring to see such a huge animal so close by. And almost equally impressive to watch a sealion scoot around like a happy kid in a water park.
