So what would you do if you came eye to eye with one of these?

Fantastic encounter. I'm sure they are gentle giants but could do a lot of damage accidentally. We had a similar encounter whilst fishing out at Little Barrier ( Auckland) with a whale swimming around us and I can tell you, when your fishing from a Jetski, the craft I was sitting on seemed suddenly very small. We eventually left and went fish a few hundred meters away but the whale followed us and checked us out a bit more.
Your video shows one of the true joys of fishing...encounters with whales, dolphins, gannets etc really makes your day. Nice video.
