I would lash out at an annoying object that was circling around my head! I can only imagine how incredible loud a four stroke engine would sounds to these animals. From the looks of the animal (nice close up shot at the end, morans!!) it looks like a sperm whale and these whale in particular are highly sensitive to sound. I can see why is is agitated with five boats in close proximity, I have no sympathy for these people. I don't hope they drown but a good dose hypothermia wouldn't go a miss!!
