  1. WATCH: Seal flips on board boat while being hunted by pod of orcas


    A pod of orcas circle a B.C. man's boat near Powell River after a terrified seal jumped on to seek refuge.

    When Comox resident Kirk Fraser took his visiting parents and a friend boating to watch whales in Powell River, they weren’t expecting to get the exciting show that unfolded after a pod of orcas began hunting a seal nearby.

    The crew was out on a 33-foot zodiac boat when about 12 whales began swimming about 100 metres away. They noticed the orcas were hunting and playing with one seal when another seal’s head popped up near their boat.

    Out of fear, Fraser said the seal beelined it under their boat, but the whales followed.
