And that's when Brody looks over to Captain Quint and says, "You're gonna need a bigger boat..." Very nice indeed!

It's easy to get blown away seeing this type of thing. Years ago, I went whale watching in the Bay of Fundy. We got so close to the Wright whales we could see how big they really are. The boat operator would coast up near to them while they were logging. It was facinating, I probably dropped the "S-bomb" a few times myself. ;)

Paul,
if you ever come up to Vancouver, you have to do a couple of days @ Poets Cove Resort on Pender Island, go out on a Whale Watching trip with our friends there Dan & Tara, who we were with when we shot this video. (just off of Pender Island)

The Resort is 1st Class - amazing scenery, and the Spa there your wife would LOVE !!! Eucalyptus Steam Cave, pools, hot tubs....amazing food...wine tours, you name it!

Poets Cove

You can take Harbour Air from Downtown Vancouver and be there in 20min or less !!
