Whale Sighting

Not something that happens often so I wanted to record the event. I saw the plume of water and a breach from a distance of around 500-700m away, so unable to determine the species, probably minke though, which are known to pass through the waters off Malin Head, Donegal. By the time we would have got to her she would have dived, so no chance to dive with her, anyway as far as I know correct boat etiquette requires us to stay a certain distance away so it would only be if the whale swam to us that we would get the chance to jump in and snorkle. I am still hopeful to see one of these magnicifcant beasts under water in the wild..face to face!
