A pod of orca whales have been spotted swimming in the waters of Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet.

Vancouver Aquarium staff first spotted the pod, of at least four, before noon on Monday.

Orca sightings this close to the city is definitely a rare occurrence. Earlier this year, a pod was spotted and in the summer of 2013 one was too.
