On April 24th, 2013, when I was quite the novice I had one shot and one shot only to observe some incredibly rare Baird's Beaked Whales. My then camera wasn't as up to the task as the gear I have now but I am glad I recorded it on video. There was a LOT of competition to get to the front of the boat for these. If it ever happens again i'll be better prepared. This sequence posted here consists of screengrabs from the video taken.
