Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be chased by a pod of orcas? Well, wonder no more. A man was boating off the coast of Norway and ran into a pod of orcas, something I am sure that most of us would love to see. I would be happy to see these amazing creatures from the water’s surface.
But this guy had an amazing idea. By placing his camera underwater behind his boat and speeding away, he was able to capture the act of being chased by an orca underwater.
Granted, most of the orcas prey would not be facing their hunters, but this is still an amazing video. The raw power of these creatures is evident as they gracefully keep up with the speeding boat.
The orcas seem to be curious about the boat that is motoring away on the surface and continue to follow it for long enough for us to enjoy their beauty. The members of the pod swim in a slightly different ways, but they all head in the same general direction.
And it looks like they are enjoying chasing the boat; almost as much as we enjoy this unique video.
