We didn't get a video unfortunately, but when we were out sailing off the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic we encountered a huge pod of pilot whales also. It was amazing! What majestic creatures!

Crossing from the Canarys in '67 sailed with what must have been many hundreds of pilot whales. Took all day for them to overtake and pass us (we were making 3,,4 knots) Totally ignored us.
