It’s typical to see plenty of marine wildlife off the Humboldt coast like sea lions, urchin and gray whales. But a group of people were able to see a rare pod of killer whales up close in the area this week as they casually swam up to a fishing boat.
People aboard a boat from Full Throttle Sport Fishing out of Eureka captured a beautiful video of the killer whales, showing the magnificent creatures swimming gracefully in the Pacific Ocean.
See the video:
The video was rare to see the killer whales, although it wasn’t the first time in the area. In 2019, a similar video was taken by Madaket Captain Cody Hills aboard the Survey boat Eaglet, showing a similar pod:
Such a cool sight! While it’s easiest to see these animals from a boat, there are similar sightings happening right now from Kayak Trinidad. Enjoy the beautiful wildlife of the Humboldt coast!
