Crafty Seal Escapes Orcas By Jumping Onto Boat

Kirk Fraser was out with his family looking for whales, and whales they found!

A seal was being pursued by a pod of 12 killer whales, when it ‘ripped’ towards the boat in a desperate escape. Kirk described the episode as, ‘the most intense epic experience ever.’

Warning: Explicit Language is used.

Despite falling off the boat a number of times, the seal managed to escape after managing to take refuge for 30 to 45 minutes until the whales gave up.
