Default Orca Encounter!

No, not the one that fell over in Astoria.

Heard a snort and a great splash just off the starboard side.
An orca had surfaced 70 feet away from the boat! Chopped the throttles and we watched the pod work. Sorry, no pix.

Posted these before. We almost got him boated. Yummy ! Orca steaks!






First pic is mine from a pod we encountered northern Sea of Cortez.
Second pic is my buddy Fernando Almada's pic; it's been featured in several magazines.
