On the Boiler dive, just before they started diving, a Whale and her calf started jumping near the Boiler and after the divers went down, the Whales were placed just below the Skiff for several minutes approximately 40ft away from the Boiler. It was a show only for the Pangueros on the surface, the divers did not see them.
