Whoa, that’s just amazing. I didn’t know Orca’s interacted in that way with Humans, much like Dolphins. Is this a learned behavior?

very cool. im glad we got to see this video – though sadly someone missed out on the actual experience by having a camera in front of his/her face the whole time.

Looks like a mother & juvenile having the most fun up closest to the boat.
Incredible how fast they can swim–and maintain their speed!

Oooo, that was fun…on video. Had I been there in person I’d have pissed, sh.t and puked all over myself.
May 8, 2013 at 11:52 am
i don’t know how big that boat was, but i’m not entirely sure that was the pack hunting technique orcas use.
May 8, 2013 at 11:53 am
that WASN’T the (ie i wonder if they were not prey.)

@RONTEX: interestingly, Orcas are not whales, they ARE porpoises!
But I have never seen video this fast and spectacular, wow.
May 8, 2013 at 12:05 pm
Wow! What a great moment for them.
May 8, 2013 at 12:09 pm
I would have been terrified that one of the orcas might get too close under the boat motor and be injured. But it looks like both humans and orcas had a good time here.

Derrick, I’m right behind ya.
May 8, 2013 at 12:17 pm
Am I the only one who thinks this video is frightening. The Orca behavior and footage is spectacular, but too close for comfort. I mean, Orcas are bonafide predators.
May 8, 2013 at 12:20 pm
@Strepsi from what I learned in biology some eras ago killer whales or orcas are not whales nor porpoises. They are more related to dolphins and in fact are classified as oceanic dolphins. Killer video btw! (no pun intended)
May 8, 2013 at 12:22 pm
Yeah, they’re predators, but they’re more CURIOUS about us than hungry for us. We don’t have enough fat or meat on us compared to marine mammals or the fish they hunt.
May 8, 2013 at 12:25 pm
Yes, because the camera was able to work it’s metaphysical powers and maliciously transport him away from the boat just in time to miss the Orcas! How awful he missed it!
Oh, he still had the experience and has proof and entertaining video because of the camera? Never mind.

I get a kick out of these science nerd butch nature videos on a gay blog. These are cool, but wish your hobby was color and design.

This helps to illustrate why keeping killer whales in swimming pools at Sea World is so cruel.
May 8, 2013 at 1:17 pm
@mike128 – apparently you don’t know about modern cameras. They have a screen instead of a viewfinder so you really don’t have to put the camera up to your face anymore.
May 8, 2013 at 1:22 pm
I assume you’re being sarcastic. I know many gay butch science nerds. Would you like to meet a few?
May 8, 2013 at 1:25 pm
@beige, glad to disappoint you
May 8, 2013 at 2:51 pm
simply stunning! the Creation is simply wonderful!
just another reason why we have to take good care of the earth…
May 8, 2013 at 3:22 pm
Have gays co-opted nature? This is Andy-pamby’s boyish wonder. It’s his site after all…:)
May 8, 2013 at 5:59 pm
Amazing! And fast as hell.
May 8, 2013 at 6:44 pm
Imaging if the engine had stalled out right as the killer whales were closest… Yikes. Very beautiful. Would have loved to have been there experiencing that. Just wow.
May 8, 2013 at 8:36 pm
Wondering what would have happened if they’d turned the motor off and just let the boat come to a stop. Maybe they’d have been able to snuggle and kiss the little cuties on top of their heads. That’d be fun!
May 9, 2013 at 1:30 am
Amazing! Completely jealous but so glad to have seen this video. The people were not prey. The whales were just having fun!
May 9, 2013 at 12:20 pm
I’ve seen Sea Lions down in Cabo chasing the fishing boats. They get right up on the rear shelf and “arf” for fish. But I’ve NEVER seen a Killer Whale perform like this. They are amazing. Does anyone remember the gentoo penguin who escaped from the killer whales? “Lucky Gentoo” on Youtube.
