I'm with you on that one.......having seen them at seaworld and what they can do, amazing creatures but would not want to be in too small a boat near one.

I wonder if you leant over with a fish if one would come up for a Kiss like they do at seaworld!

I've had a minky circle our 6m rib, port, starboard, bow & stern, then dive under us left, then right, and on its last pass under us, it bumped the bottom of the boat .. after which I put the hammer down Rekon it was about 25ft long.. awesome but frightening experience too
