Final picture first.... this is the moment just before the boat went completely under.
This is a few moments before the whole thing started. That boat on the right is the one that eventually sank. In this image and the two that follow, they are clearly too close to the whales.
About 30 seconds later, I was taking pictures off the port side of the boat when I heard people scream. I turned to see the whale breaching out of the water and onto the boat. This image is a split second later... the whale and the boat are now completely under the water.
The boat starts to resurface but it is complete swamped with water.
It almost immediately starts to flip over and sink.
Everyone clinging to the overturned boat. I heard later in the day that two of them had serious injuries and were in the local hospital.
Everyone on-board another whale watching boat after being pulled from the water.
Some of the debris floating after it completely sunk. Our captain went pulled everything he could from the water.
