These are our videos taken in August of 2010 when the Orcas were in Trinity Bay. They were nationally and internationally shown on all press outlets. These videos show rare footage of Orcas attacking (and killing) a Minke Whale.
Please note, these videos show some very violent scenes. We were hesitant about showing our videos because of the graphic nature, but at the same time, realize that this is nature. It is what animals in the wild have to do, which is eat.
In this first video, we realize that something more is happening in the water than just the Orcas swimming and playing, as they had in the past times that we had seen them. There was an incident a couple of days prior, where we heard of an Orca attack on the Southern Shore, but we were not expecting to see what we saw that day.
These videos give us dramatic evidence as to how the ocean's top predator hunts their prey. Trinity Eco-Tours was the only tour company to catch the attack in Trinity Bay. We are also the only tour company with detailed footage and video of the attack. This was no mistake. We take videos on all of our tours and are ready for anything that might happen on the water.
We have upgrade our cameras to HQ and are ready for more exciting tours this summer. Data collected by researchers suggest that the Orcas may start feeding around the Newfoundland Coast more often, as they get accustomed to the varied mammals that come here to feed during the capelin-rich summer months. No matter what wildlife comes to Trinity Bay, we will be here to see it. We hope that you join us for the experience of a lifetime.
