SA DIEGO (KGTV) -- Incredible video shot off the coast of San Diego shows orca whales swimming alongside a boat.

People onboard a BRINK Expeditions fishing charter boat filmed video Saturday roughly 35 miles oaway from the San Diego Bay. 

The whales appeared to chase and play in the wake of the boat for about an hour and a half. The killer whales also swam under the vessel.

Both juvenile and adult whales appeared in the pod. The boat’s captain told 10News he’s never had an experience like this in his 15 years of fishing off the coast of San Diego.
