Whale fish...

Exmouth Gulf, no surf and glorious weather makes for a day on the water looking for adventure. This is what happens when you chance across a Humpback Whale and it's calf, she didn't appreciate me getting to close and charged at me whilst trying to whack me with her side dorsal fin, after some swift backing off she reverted to a full on tail swipe. It's obvious how close it gets but man, you should have felt the power from that tail and the speed at which it moved was immense.

One awe inspiring moment, that is what it's all about!
