All footage was taken 500ft+ away from whale, used a zoomed lens from Ragecams.
Using my Dronefly and Gopro Hero 3+, I was able to catch these beautiful whales enjoying the ocean over 3 separate days on the North Shore of Oahu, my favorite being the pod of whales swimming through the wave lineup at Pipeline. While I filmed from land, the whales ranged anywhere from a mile out at sea to close to the shore. A truly awesome experience.
