Following a group of seven whales in the Canyon we were afforded a spectacular display as all seven rose out of the water almost simultaneously. The first one was so close to the boat I couldn't get it in the frame. From left to right, they breached almost as one.

Why did all seven whales breach together? It was impossible to photograph all the breaches at the same time, but the breaching went on for several minutes with more than 30 breaches in a matter of minutes. This was the second group of six to seven whales we saw today. I tried to film them in the water but they simply weren't interested, having their own agenda. We also obtained a bumper crop of whale flukes today.
