To the surprise of both crew and clients on the whale and dolphin trips, which operate from Los Gigantes, a pod of 8 migrating Orca whales were spotted off Alcala.

They have been spotted in past years but never as many as 8 in one pod

Orcas, or killer whales, are the largest of the dolphins and one of the world's most powerful predators. They feast on marine mammals such as seals, sea lions, and even whales, employing teeth that can be four inches long. They are known to grab seals right off the ice. They also eat fish, squid, and seabirds.
