That's really great that you can get up close to them like that.  I know they're actually pretty tame and almost as friendly as dolphins, but do you ever worry about being close to such powerful creatures with rows of huuugeah teeth?!  :D Love the black bear, too.

totally not worried about the Orca - this day we were in the water for the 4 hrs. The sun didn't actually rise over the horizon - so you have to take advantage of every drop of daylight. as the light was fading - I jumped on the paddle board to rest & then head back to boat when the orca came right up to me and I waved bye.  I actually have underwater video of one going right up to my Hubby & checking him out ! was amazing !!!!

Good stuff.  There are the type of people such as yourself (and I've swam with whale sharks in the Red Sea many, many years ago) and people like the ones in this video.

Woman calls the cops from a boat because she's super frightened at a couple of whales checking them out and being completely harmless.  Her and her son were not enjoying the experience whatsoever despite the husbands valiant attempts to get them to chill out.  The lady is getting a lot of flack on social media for calling the cops, lol.
