Orca Sighting In The Harbour

The arrival of five orcas (four adults and a calf) at Ohiwa Harbour in September created quite a lot of excitement as Ohope residents and campers flocked to the Harbour side to see them. The pod had been sighted as early as 7am near the island then headed back out to sea.

This paddle boarder had a close encounter when he attracted the attention of two orcas that split off from the pod and headed straight for him then dived under his board.

They can quite often be seen at this time of year right through to January in the harbour. They will chase and feed on the stingrays.
