Did you know that there is a time of year when killer whale sightings rise?

According to Monterey Bay Whale Beach Watch, this season extends through May, and because of that, an incredible video of a group of orcas was caught on camera.

In the video, you can see a double breach from the group of killer whales. A “breach” is when marine mammals, like whales and orcas, essentially jump out of the water and spin.

It is incredible to see the killer whales in this video not only do this, but they are also filmed “pec slapping,” which is when members of the cetacean species, which includes whales, dolphins and porpoises, lift and drop their pectoral fins into the water while leaning on one side of their bodies.

After watching this video, it seems like the killer whales knew that they had a bit of an audience and decided to show off for the camera! Lucky for us, these orcas hammed it up for the camera!

If you are a big fan of killer whales, you will be amazed by this video of a diver’s encounter with a pod of seven killer whales in the ocean.

Please SHARE these orcas that enjoyed showing off for the camera with all of your friends and family!
