Orca whales chasing speed boat

That's a good one awesome .. Ive been buzzed by Adult Minke's and even hit by them when at rest as they can be quite inquisitive, but ive never seen Orcas do that ever, they usually keep to them selves.

These "Whales" are actually "Dolphins"

Incredible footage when you think about the speed the boat and the physical mass of the Orcas. Been buzzed by a Minke before, and just a little too close for comfort, so know the feeling. New pants please.

+2 for 'where's mom'?
