Some folks may be concerned we approached too close to the whales. We actually stopped a several hundred yards away (the cell phone is zoomed in, hence the grainy pics). We put it in neutral and were drifting. The Orcas were swimming back and forth (east and west) and were slowly approaching us. We repositioned once or twice to try and make room, but the Orcas kept getting closer. By the time they were within a hundred yards or so, we decided it was safer to just keep it in neutral and let them pass. This is exactly what the guidelines say to do.
