Dramatic Killer Whale Hunt offshore in Los Cabos

Whales Ecology Los Cabos Mexico

An orca (killer whale) hunts a dolphin off the coast of Los Cabos

A few weeks ago, our friends at Ocean Riders Los Cabos shared some incredible photos of migrant orcas cruising the coastline of Los Cabos. Visitors aboard Ocean Riders’ boats where treated to the once-in-a-lifetime sight of these magnificent hunters pursuing a pod of resident dolphins. The action-packed scene was rife with drama:

Los Cabos Mexico Ecology Orca Whales

Acrobatics in the waters of Los Cabos as an orca hunts a dolphin just offshore...will the dolphin get away!?

The orcas had some babies present—no doubt giving them an important hunting lesson.

There was a happy ending for Cabo’s resident dolphins this day, as the killer whales were unsuccessful in their hunt, cruising off into the horizon as they make their way north along the Pacific coast.
