Those who live or have visited British Columbia may have seen a whale or two. But those along the Stanley Park Seawall in Vancouver on Tuesday night had quite the spectacle with a pod of orcas seen swimming around.

The group of ‘passenger’ orcas may have ventured into Vancouver waters ‘looking for seals that hang out near the shore’, the University’s Marine Mammal Research Unit told Narcity. of British Columbia.

The researchers said sightings like this happen more frequently because there is “a high probability of catching seals”.

It appears that there were two or three of the killer whales that made their way into the waters of Burrard Inlet near English Bay.

The whales even approached a few sailboats in the water, giving some lucky ones a front row seat to the action.

The waters in the area are normally full of people boating, kayaking or paddleboarding, as there are a few public beaches that lead into the water.

Dozens of spectators on this beach were treated to the sight of whales along the ever-popular seawall that surrounds Stanley Park.

An orca with Stanley Park as a backdrop – it doesn’t get much more “BC” than that!

And it looks like these lucky whale watchers got their money’s worth on their tour. It’s hard to get much closer than that.
