Mute the video before watching.  It's much cooler without the high-pitched banshee wailing every 3 seconds.

You have to wonder if they do that because it feels like a nice, big jacuzzi jet....   Very cool clip.  Thanks Subby!!

Nice of the video to be so small

Nothing better than forced letterbox video uploaded to YouTube, embedded in a worthless page in a manner that prevents the "fuillscreen" button from being used. Bravo.

Alternately?  Do us all a favor and replace the sound with music...even horrible music would be better than that.

Did anybody else stop and think how fast that boat was going and how effortless it looked for the whales to keep up? Also, from the article she didn't show the video to anyone until a news reporter was at her house for an unrelated story a year later. If I had that kind of footage, I would be showing it for the world to see.

I've been whale watching and orcas love to do this. They are very playful and they love to put on a show and swim in the wake of the boat.
 
2013-05-06 01:42:17 PM  
Two things.

They are faster than I thought and that was cool.

Secondly, apparently we travel the seas by their leave and by their leave alone. Those whales could have easily taken that boat

Attention everyone in the world with a camera-
If something cool happens just shut the fark up and film it.

In spite of the monumental motor mouth in the vid those creatures remind me how physically insignificant we really are.

He didn't even really film it, he just had a dashcam running and happened to be pointing the right direction some of the time.

All I saw was a pod of "Killer" whales doing a practice run...

// able to leap higher than the deck rail - check
/// get the tasty meat to gather close together - check
//// next time, dinner!

Why is it that I only seem to notice women being obnoxious coonts in videos?  Is it just because when guys are idiots they still don't sound as horrible as a god damned woman who can't keep her mouth shut?

That's even better. If it was my dash cam there would have been an unending stream of "holy shiat"'s back to back. Team him up with the asteroid guy in Russia. Those guys are smooth.

Consider how fast that boat is going and then think about the speed that huge animal is swimming without being propelled by a motor. It's just astonishing. Nature is wonderful.

I think the fact that they're not holding the camera has something to do with it. Put a camera in the average person's hand and they turn into David Attenborough. Holding it gives them a constant reminder of the camera and they tend to be self conscious and start babbling. It's a hard habit to break.

Because us guys are generally idiots all the time, and it becomes nothing more than background noise after a while.

I got nervous a little when the whales started tailgating the backend of the boat near the prop.. They got pretty close a few times

True, good point, and I do realize they are highly specialized apex predators but damn, watching a few tons worth of Killer whales surf and breach to dive back in is awesome.


I know some people that don't do well on land :)

Orcas are cool.  They hunt and eat sharks.  And anything else they want to eat. It's good to be at the top of the food web.

Ever see a big huge fat guy get into a brawl, and then bob and weave and rush like a guy half his size?  Orcas are like the surprisingly agile fat drunk guys of the ocean.
