A stand-up paddleboarder got a killer view of a pod of orca whales that swam under his
board off the coast of Laguna Beach, California.
My dream of seeing Orcas (aka killer whales) recently came true. Watch as a friendly pod of 5 orcas interacts with me on my paddle board. This was filmed with my GoPro off the coast of Laguna Beach California. You’ll see the whales come directly under my board twice. This was an amazing, magical afternoon. The five whales hung around for a while, said Rich German.
Whales dive under German’s board a few times, and the pod seems to showboat for nearby whale watchers. One whale comes up for breath just feet from German, spraying the water between them with its spout.
German has seen all kinds of whales on his trips on the water, including humpbacks and blue whales, never killer whales before, he said. The orca lover dreamed of this moment.
