Orca in Auckland

Orca in Auckland

While on a recent sea kayak tour in the Auckland Harbor we where fortunate to see a pod of Orca.

Orca where not afraid of the sea kayaks while the ate the eagle rays.

The Orcas cruise the shallow waters in harbours such the Waitematā to forage along the muddy or sandy floors. They seize the rays by the head or tail tip in order to avoid the barb halfway along the tail.
