I think our group has luck with the whales. We have seen them 4 times already! The most of anyone on the boat. I think that the ones we saw on the safety drop were different from the one today though. While snorkelling we saw one for a good 5-10 minutes. It was unbelievably big. Awesome! it seemed to be sleeping just under the surface. There was us snorkelling, and a group of divers in a line on one side if it. The whale was just chillin out, the up she came to breathe and back down again. Soon after a black manta came flying by!! It did some flips as if to say hello to us. Amazing!!
