Pod of Killer Whales approach Kayaker

In Olympia, WA, a kayaker had an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience when a pod of killer whales swam up to her kayak in Eld Inlet. She captured the entire event on video, showing the moment when these amazing creatures approached her.

As she paddled through the calm waters, the peaceful atmosphere quickly turned into an a moment of anxiety. The video shows the killer whales breaching the surface, blowing air through their blowholes, and diving back underwater, just inches away from the kayak.

Killer whales, also known as orcas, are very smart and social animals that travel in groups called pods. These pods can have up to 40 whales. Known for their black-and-white coloring and unique sounds, killer whales are top predators in the ocean. Although they rarely interact with humans, they are not usually dangerous to us.
