When Killer Whales Chase Your Boat, You Better Have Your Camera [VIDEO]

A pack of killer whales chase down a speed boat in this incredible video.

I’m no orca-behavior expert, but it seems to me like the killer whales in this video are chasing a boat out of their territory. Although, they might have just been playing in the boat’s wake like dolphins sometimes do. It’s hard to say.

This clip was filmed on the Pacific Ocean. In the video, three killer whales chase after a motor boat that appears to be moving pretty fast. Orcas can swim up to 30 mph. These whales were swimming just feet from the stern of the boat and leaping with incredible power in the boat’s wake. It must have been an amazing and slightly terrifying experience for the people onboard.

Are these killer whales being playful or aggressive? You decide.
