Dave Hurwitz from Simon’s Town Boat Company captured these awesome photos of whales having a proverbial “whale” of a time two days ago.

Dave told SAPeople that “we find if it is windy, the whales become super active.”

On Facebook he wrote “It was wild out there this morning [3 August 2015] – the sea was CRAZY & so were the whales. Our hard-core clients had the time of their lives!”

A couple of days beforehand Dave also posted this picture below of a “friendly and entertaining Humpback Whale” which is lucky to be alive.

He said: “It shows obvious injuries resulting from an attack by a pod of Killer Whales. Despite having had half of its left fluke bitten off, its body riddled with tooth rake marks & bites, the animal was in good spirits & even managed a breach for us.”
