Close Encounter With Whales

Close Encounter Of The Scary Kind

Anyone who has had the experience of seeing Killer Whales up close in local waters, knows just how exhilarating and somewhat frightening the encounter can actually be. I can remember many years ago on several occasions having killer whales swim beneath my boat close enough to the surface to clearly see them.

The fact they don't have a history of dining on humans does not change the impact these large creatures would have on your craft if they should surface right underneath you. The whales in the above video are considerably larger that the local Orcas and the outcome of these encounters very easily could have been tragic.
