Sightseer Cherished Vision of White Orcas in Vancouver Waters

Their $30 trip suddenly turned into a one feeding the eyes of the sightseers with a view worth more than the cost paid. It was a rare sight of orca whales.

The passengers of a boat in Vancouver were spellbound and astonished to witness the sight of a pod of orca whales sailing underneath the Lions Gate Bridge on Friday. It was a one-hour sightseeing trip that marked the sight of also called killer whales.

One of the tour guide Nicholas Litt said that they were jumping with excitement to view such a rare event that never happened on any of the trip. The passengers rushed towards the rails of the boat to catch the sight of such astonishing and elegant mammals.

One of the guide advised of returning back to the vessel to sight if there were more orcas in the tow or not. The group marked the number of total visible orcas as six. One of the tour guide suggested that it was clearly visible that one of their dorsal fins was enormous, i. e. about a meter-and-a-half.

The boat was kept at a distance from the whales as it followed them toward the Second Narrows Bridge. All the patrons were fully satisfied, eventually when the tour ended. It was revealed that the next tour passengers also enjoyed the sight of few of the whales.
