(Video) Dramatic Footage Of Killer Whales Off Long Beach California
What a tremendous start to the 2012 whale watch season in Southern California. Harbor Breeze Cruises in Long Beach has seen gray whales, minke whales, humpback whales, blue whales and fin whales along with copious amounts of dolphin and other sea life.
Perhaps most exciting of all has been the numerous visits of killer whales to the waters just off Southern California.
Captain Danny Salas and Harbor Breeze Cruises have provided Phil Friedman Outdoors with some incredible footage of one of those visits from January of 2012.
You'll see Orcas spyhopping, breaching, blowing bubbles and swimming at high speeds. You'll also see how curious killer whales are. The Orca's brain is five times larger than the human brain. They are very social and highly intelligent animals and you will see their curiosity manifest itself as they come as close as possible to the whale watch vessel Christopher. The Orcas seem as interested as looking at the humans as the humans at them.
This great footage was provided by Harbor Breeze Cruises in Long Beach, California. I only hope that you too will get a chance to see a killer whale in person soon.
