Orcas are large, black bodies, white undersides, white patches above and behind the eyes and a grey “saddle patch” behind the dorsal fin.
Males are up to ten meters long, larger than females, and have a high towering dorsal fin that can reach up to two meters in length.
One of the best places as large quantities of herring gather. Hundreds or even thousands of whales gather here to hunt and you can also go to the cold and crystal clear fjord water is a perfect place to observe orcas pods. The best time to travel is between Oct - February
Canada is a real paradise for fans of the sea giants. Especially off the coast of Vancouver Island the animals are regularly seen, but there are also several other locations that are perfect for whale watching. The best time to go is between May - September
New Zealand is one of the best places in the world to watch sperm whales all year round.
There are also many different species of dolphins living here, occasionally orcas and other large whales can be seen.
However, Orca sightings are not as usual in New Zealand compared to Norway.
Orcas are also increasingly being observed near Costa Rica – a small sensation because these beautiful animals prefer colder waters.
Killer whales migrate abundantly into warmer, temperate waters on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The best time of year is August and April.
It's important to know that orcas are still wild animals and be cautious if swimming/diving with them. Orcas are incredible animals to see in the wild. Norway definitely is a prime spot for seeing them. However, you might also get lucky to see Orcas in New Zealand, Costa Rica or Canada.
