“Then they came over to me and pretty much straight away the males were playing with the boat, having a look and sussing me out.

“Eventually they brought the baby over to me and introduced me to the baby.

the Fisherman then attempted to hand feed one of the whales before dropping the fish into the water.

“It’s something that you don’t see ever so I didn’t want to ruin the opportunity,” Bain said.
