Feeding Orcas Surround Fishing Boat off Norway's Lofoten Islands

A pod of orcas surrounded a fisherwoman as they fed on herring near the village of Henningsvaer in the Lofoten Islands, Norway, on April 25, video shows.

Cecilie Haaland, who captured the video, told Storyful she was out fishing on her boat just outside her village of Henningsvaer, as she often does.

“This afternoon I was surrounded by a pod of orcas. The orcas swam under my boat and around me for over an hour,” Haaland said.

She described the encounter as an “absolutely amazing experience.” Credit: Cecilie Haaland via Storyful
