Kayaker's Up-Close Encounter with Pod of Orca
Occurred on December 29, 2019 / Hauraki Gulf, Auckland, New Zealand
Info from Licensor: "While lying in my bed, I notice a disturbance in the otherwise calm sea. Upon further inspection, I quickly became aware that it was a pod of Orca commencing their quest to hunt stingrays. Yelling to my family, I quickly grabbed my paddle and quickly paddled out into our local bay Sandy bay. There, I experienced the most amazing encounter , with the ocra pod. I followed them for over an hour, during which, the orca approached my kayak on numerous occasions. I looked plenty of still shots as well as video footage. I watched In awe as these majestic mammals hunted and feed on the Ray's wings."
