Boland was able to record it, showing the orcas surfacing close to the shore line. The three whales came close to the kayakers before swimming away.

There have been a few whales sightings over the last few months, including a humpback whale that recently swam by Vancouver.

Have you ever seen orcas near the Vancouver shores?
