Playful Orca Surprises Fishermen

This is the incredible moment a group of fishermen encountered a playful Orca whale tailing their boat. Nathan Benge captured the amazing video as he and four others fished for Yellowtail off the San Diego, California, coast. The group spotted the Orca through binoculars about half a mile away as it breached. And within minutes, the playful Orca split off from the pod and was leaping out of the water within feet of their boat
