While out on his deck, Ken Heinrich noticed orcas breaching in the distance.

So he grabbed his camera and began filming the action from the shore, before going in for a closer look on his kayak.

“I spotted breaching orcas from the deck so we took photos and vids for a couple of minutes before jumping in the kayaks,” he wrote on Youtube.

“We were simply drifting when the pod came towards us and at one point circled around to the shore side of us. The most amazing animal experience of my life!!!”

Heinrich adds the “incredible creatures were wonderful to watch. Tail slapping, breaching (including one extremely close breach!) and just cruising until they slowly just continued on down the straight to their next destination. Simply amazing…”

We have to agree.
