11.04.2022: about 20 Orcas / Killer whales (Orcinus orca)

Sightings April 11th, 2022: We and our guests were lucky enough to see Orcas or Killer whales (Orcinus orca) off the south coast of La Gomera today.

During the whale watching tour we encountered with two groups of Orcas, all together there were about 20 of them. The were very calm and curious, they came pretty close to our boat and swar below and beside it. It was just spectacular!

We also saw a big pod of Pilot whales where swam quite dynamic behind the pods of Orcas, it seemed as if they got together to chase the Killer whales away.

Soon we will post a Video here for you.
