In the video, Morris can be seen waving at the creatures before they returned to their pod.
Explaining the thrilling experience Steve stated, “The orca were extremely close, barely a metre away. I have never seen this face-to-face interaction before but I have dreamt about it. At first, when I saw the two break away from the rest of the pod it was a bit unnerving. But when I realised they had just come to say hello, I just enjoyed the experience.”
“It seemed a lot longer but probably only an additional 30 seconds on top of what was in the videos. I had no fear but certainly respected them as they are powerful wild animals after all. Luckily they are also extremely intelligent and don’t harm people other than those that keep them captive,” he further added.
