Whale watching company based on Vancouver Island captures incredible images of an orca punting a seal several feet up above the water.
VANCOUVER – Yesterday we featured a video of an otter that narrowly escaped being eaten by an Orca by jumping onto the back of a nearby boat.
Today’s images are of a seal that was less fortunate during its encounter with a predatory Orca.
On Monday, a whale-watching operator shared images of a transient orca launching a seal high above the water to its Instagram page. It writes, “Yesterday we witnessed some breathtaking action during our encounter with the T10’s!
“This included them punting a hapless Seal clear in the air, it was an unbelievable sight and showed the power and skill of these apex predators.”
Established in 1985, Five Star Whales is based in Victoria and offers whale watching tours daily. While it temporarily suspended operations due to COVID-19, the company began offering tours again on June 20.
