Enormous excitement today as passengers from the day boats came ashore with tales of seeing a pod of Orcas on their journey to the islands.   What a wonderful sight that must have been!   Orca (Photo: Nicola Boulton)Orca (2) (Photo: Nicola Boulton)

We later heard that the pod was seen again by all the boat operators as they returned home. Nicola Boulton (crew member, Go To St Kilda) said they seemed very curious about the boats and cruised alongside for 15 minutes before heading off, with one even surfacing about 7 meters off the bow of their boat.  Wow!
