    Goodridge, a visitor from the United Kingdom, commented what he witnessed that day was "one of the most spectacular breaches he had ever seen" although he was also a little frightened as the giant whale almost seemed to swamp the boat they were on. Goodridge estimates that around 30 whale breaches where recorded that trip:  "The tourists picked a great day for it, with some thirty whale breaches recorded in just a little over an hour. The whales were really playful. Sometimes you can sit out there and not even see one, so we were really lucky." he said in an interview to the Daily Mail
