A Chance Encounter with an Orca Super Pod



Mountaineer Peter Hillary describes a chance encounter with the beginnings of an orca super pod in this video. Orcas normally travel in much smaller units, but they’ll occasionally gather to choose mates from outside their family circle. These super pods are very rare and normally only gather for a few hours. Guests aboard National Geographic Explorer encountered one on our Antarctica cruise last week.
