Orcas Ride the Wake of a Fishing Boat near San Diego

 

This exhilarating video perfectly captures the excitement of orcas playing in the wake of a small fishing charter boat. Orcas are a type of highly-social dolphin and will occasionally interact with boats by bow-riding, swimming alongside or riding boat wakes. At Hornblower we occasionally spot orcas on our Whale Watching cruises, which is always a thrilling experience! This sighting took place off the Coronados Islands in Mexican waters and close to where we watch whales off the San Diego coast.
