Amazin footage of orca-friendly approaching to a boat, this is something I’ve had always wish happens to me!
A moment like this is not only deeply beautiful and energetic but both scary and intense. The lady on the video it is actually pretty brave by setting her hand inside the water so close to such majestically big wild animals.
Although Orca whales have a bad reputation, they are actually playful and friendly.
Do the whales think this is a big and tasty seal? Or are they just playing?
Naomi Rose of the Animal Welfare Institute to get to the bottom of this bewildering behavior. She said “It’s called wake-riding and they are doing it for fun. They are literally surfing with very little effort when riding in the wake of a boat like this.”
What an incredibly touching moment!
