"We had been searching for orcas in the area to snorkel with for six days," said Mike.

In the video footage, you can see how crystal clear the water is as two orca whales swim right up underneath the boat. How incredible it must have been to be that close to those magnificent creatures!

As the pod of orca whales surface, you can see their fins come up out of the water. There is even underwater footage of the orcas as they swim past the boat. They look like they are dancing and playing together in the water.
