Drone Captures Lone Swimmer Amongst Pod of Orcas From Above

 

This was filmed by Dylan Bradshaw on December 4th at Hahei Beach on the Coromandel peninsular of New Zealand. Bradshaw says he was watching a pod of orcas swimming up the beach, when he saw a swimmer swimming along shore directly towards them. He continues:

 

“At this point I asked my partner to get my mobile phone as I wasn’t sure what would happen and I may have to call for help. The orcas circled her and she got quite the fright. She then got out the water as she was only 20m from shore. Some onlookers chatted to her about the experience and then to my surprise she got back into the water and swam back towards the pod, to I assume continue her training swim. I then launched the drone and filmed from a fair distance away making sure not to disturb the pod of orcas. What I witnessed was truly amazing.”
