Orcas surprised a paddle board yoga group in Deception Pass and they got it all on film

June 23, 2017



As a group of stand-up paddle boarders were taking to the waters for Stand-Up Paddle Board Yoga (google this) at Deception Pass, they got more than the stretches and cold water that they bargained for.

Watch: WA Ferry collides with a sleepy captain's boat in Puget Sound

A pod of orca whales breached in the middle of their group and paddle boarder Jennifer Bull captured the whole experience.

In the video description, Bull mentions that her crew of yoga enthusiasts paddled a bit further to find a group of seals taking refuge from the pod, who would have made the seals a mid-day snack. 

Orcas in the Puget Sound are currently listed as an endangered species and May-September are often the most-likely months to be able to see a whale in the Puget Sound. You can even see pods from the ferries, on occasion.

But it isn't often that you get to go toe-to-toe...er...fin with the big ones like that. 

Know any great places to see whales in Seattle?
