Killer Whale Pod

I’ve seen dolphins do this soooo many times growing up. And a couple of the smaller whales but oh, something about orca doing this is just incredible. They really are wolves compared to the other whales, dolphins and porpoises. They are one of my favourites, even as dangerous as they can be.

    Beautiful sight but I don’t understand — exactly how dangerous is this for the ship?

    1. Not at all really. Riding the wake is usually done in full play. THey also ride large waves. Large whales can’t do this. They are hydroplaning off of the wake so the force of the water really is pushing them back.

  2. So cool! I’ve only seen them up by the San Juan’s on the ferry to Vancouver Island where there are pods that live there all year round.
