Killer whales spotted in Vancouver harbour
3 orcas were seen swimming near the Ironworkers bridge
A pod of killer whales was spotted swimming in the waters of the Vancouver harbour Tuesday afternoon.
The Vancouver Police Department posted photos to social media of at least three orcas under the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge, deep in the inner harbour.
"We were just cycling round the seawall when my wife, Sally, spotted them in the distance," said David Mulholland, who caught the pod on video around 2 p.m.
"By the time we got to the bridge, there was quite a crowd and the orcas definitely played up for the audience," he added.
