7 images Created 16 Feb 2010
Orcas in Hawaii??!! These are very unusual pictures of killer whales, Orcinus orca, sighted in Kona, Hawaii on June 9, 2009. They are called "transient" and extremely rare to see them in Hawaiian waters. This is the first time I saw them in 10 years of my boating life in Kona.
