Orcas Thrill Onlooker With Visit to Washington Marina

A woman in Friday Harbor, Washington, had a day to remember on January 3 when she witnessed two orcas swimming at a local marina.

Crystal Elaine Trask was on a boat at the marina when she heard what sounded like whales breaching close by.

“I scrambled to get my phone before I even actually looked,” she said.

“I almost fell in but I managed not and took the video in silence … I didn’t want to ruin the moment with my excitement. It was nature at its best,” she added.

Trask said she’s seen orcas before but never this close to the marina. Credit: Crystal Elaine Trask via Storyful
