Tramping along in quite a large swell today. Mostly sunny but the odd spot of rain with the wind occasionally up to 30knots. Great excitement today as whales were spotted closeby . This morning a large whale, possibly a sperm whale was spotted briefly cruising along beside us no more than a boats length away and this afternoon one or more smaller whales with dolpin like fins made a few passes by the boat, spouting occasionally. Unfortunately cameras could not be brought to bear soon enough.
