Imagine seeing a pod of killer whales right outside your house!

Well, this is exactly what happened to Tanya Blake from British Colombia as she sat on her deck enjoying the evening sun.

Tanya, who lives in Victoria, said: “I was so excited and amazed when I spotted the whales entering Victoria harbour from my deck.

“There were five of them altogether; one male, two females and two calves.”

With the tide being low, Tanya thinks the whales could’ve entered the harbour in order to hunt.

And as people scampered to the rocks to find a better spot to view them from, the excitement at sharing the amazing experience was truly incredible.

Tanya said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes, when they resurfaced, it was so spectacular.

“They took about thirty minutes in total before they left the harbour, and it was so awe inspiring for everyone to witness.”
