What did you do in order to get nice shots (or to increase the probability of doing so) while on a whalewatch?

This will be my first opportunity to try mine on the high seas being a fairly new acquisition and the season is just a couple of weeks old.

Would you care to share any advice in order to improve my chances of nailing some great captures? What should I do doing and how should (what shutter speeds/etc.) the camera be set-up for flukes, breeches, bubble-feeding and taking shots of the harbor/coastline while out to sea/on the move?

Hope there's something to capture this time around as the last one I went on had none!

Prior trips included taking a video cam which will be left behind for obvious reasons.

Want to make the most of the new “baby”!

Thanks in advance.
