Fishermen Understandably Freak Out After Killer Whales Swim Under Their Boat


Some fishermen in Washington state can be forgiven for their very frazzled reactions after a pod of killer whales swam right under their rowboat.

Facebook video of the close encounter near Anderson Island in Puget Sound is making the rounds on social media after it was initially posted in December.

The first few seconds of the footage show a distant pod of orcas leaping out of the water.

The crab fisherman sitting in the rowboat, including cameraman Steven Sloan, seem pretty exhilarated to have stumbled on the animals.

Then, the killer whales get closer. And closer. And then they disappear.
