Orca whales spotted in Vancouver's Burrard Inlet
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.

Today a pod of Biggs killer whales (including a calf) visited Burrard Inlet just off Stanley Park. We’ve ID’d the pod as the T65A’s. If you see a whale, dolphin or porpoise we want to know – report your sightings to our B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network. http://wildwhales.org/sightings #Biggs #killerwhales A photo posted by Vancouver Aquarium (@vanaqua) on
