Victoria Cruises To View Orca Whales

Posted by admin under Uncategorized on April 20th, 2011.

Taking a trip to view whales is a trip that will never be forgotten. The Orca whale, also known as the Killer Whale, really is no whale at all but rather a cetacean. The Killer Whale is the most popular whale that whale shows use for a performance. The Killer Whale is known for its speed that it uses to hunt its prey in the ocean. Killer Whales usually can be found swimming together in groups called pods, which makes them the perfect object for viewing on a whale watching trip.

Upon leaving to view the whales on a whale watching trip it is important to remember a few things. First of all dress for the weather. Being on the water usually means cooler temperatures and more wind. Second never stare at the water, but try and keep your eyes on the horizon. By doing this you will not get sea sick from the constant movement of the waves. Third, just have as much fun as possible. On some trips the Orca’s have been known to swim up the side of the boats to see who it is. The Killer Whale has a large fin on its back which makes it easy to identify. If you are lucky the Orca will breach out of the water and get you all wet.
