View Full Version : Seal jumps onto boat to avoid Orcas

They weren't called Killer Whales for nothing.

There's a bit of language, about what you would expect from a boatful of people when a seal joins them

Young seal. Those Orcas sure knew where lunch had gone.

As I said somewhere else. I have friend who did that when a 3 metre bronze whaler came up behind her on the swmiming ladder.
Should a seen her move. 3 eights and a nine for the landing.

They're freaking killer "whales," I think if they missed a meal or two, they'd survive. Ever see a guy 200 pounds overweight miss a meal and instantly kick the bucket? No? I figgered! (tm Glen L)

This has happened before. Same area of Pacific. About 20 years ago, I remember the CTV report. Orca chasing a seal around, the seal leaped right into the cockpit.

This one had 3/4 after it. You'd think they'd rock the boat. I remember a story of a pod rocking an ice field down in Antartica to get a Leopard seal.
And remember "Survive the Savage Sea"? They sunk his boat.
