Magic!

I thought it was pretty amazing when, a few months ago, a dolphin banged hard into my hull right beside the finger while chasing fish in the marina here, but nothing like that!

There was a feeding whale in Nova Scotia that came into the harbor. I think this is the same one.

Re: Don't feed the fish at Marinas

Did you guys notice the circle of bubbles that came up just before the whale broke the surface? That's a classic humpback hunting technique.
Humpback Feeding Behaviour

I'd pay good money to be there when that happened.
