Also, get a good camera with a fast focus and a long zoom so you can stay a good distance away and yet still get some nice photos.

Counter to some advice above, do not start your motor if you are in the midst of a group of whales. In that situation, put yourself in irons and wait for the whales to leave the area before starting the motor.
