Swiftly grabbing a camera, Brad’s friend Tony captured the remarkable moment. Mere feet away from their boat, a pod of whales was engrossed in a captivating feeding ritual.

The sheer grandeur of these magnificent creatures caused ripples in the water and sent tremors through the boat, prompting the crew to keep a safe distance.
