Yes humpbacks. Been in with many species of whales ( and sharks etc ) it's pretty special to be beneath the surface listening to their vocals. I've also been in with them when they are mating which is a pretty rare event to catch on film.

They aren't rare at all here, approximately 3000 pass by very close to shore, you can literally see humpbacks jumping in all directions once on the water. Seeing 100+ in a day isn't unusual, they will also cruise the back of surf in just 5m of water.

I left the UK because of always living in poverty, in and out of work, laying bricks in rain, snow and ice etc. It was the best thing I ever did moving out here, managed to buy a 4x4, boat and start a mortgage on a place within 5 months of getting here and starting with nothing. Twenty years on after several home upgrades we now live 20m from the water and own all our assets, thirty years living in the UK certainly makes me appreciate what I have now.
