“Next thing I knew, one of the whales just slammed into the side of the boat. The other guy went flying onto the deck and I went flying off the back of the boat into the water.

“Dave got up and he didn’t know where I was,” Lane continued. “He checked the cabin because he thought I might be in there. It took him a moment to realize I was in the water trying to get back on.”

“You have to wear a lifejacket, and you should have a means of getting back in the boat, too,” Lane told CorkBeo.
