Yes, we were very lucky to have totally calm waters yesterday and ended up doing a trip to Barbuda. On the way there we spotted two pods of dolphins, but they didn't seem that interested in us at all. After we arrived there and had a swim, I saw a black object break the surface a few miles off and figured we were in for a treat. Armed with cameras we arrived nearby and switched off the engines. The mother and calf came alongside and did about five circles around us before swimming off together. We had 30 minutes of fantastic whale viewing both in and out of the water. Several of the people with us couldn't be held back and went snorkeling with the amazing creatures. Here is a movie taken with our little cheap camera. http://www.acquafilms.com/ were on board with us so hopefully they will have some awesome footage to show us soon.
