Killer whales approach snorkelers off Mexico coast

June 12 (UPI) -- A group of snorkelers off the coast of Mexico captured video of their close encounter with a group of killer whales that swam over to investigate the humans.

The video, filmed Saturday in the Gulf of California, shows the snorkelers looking on in surprise as the orcas pass almost within arm's reach.


The filmer said the killer whales had been eating mobula rays when they spotted the humans nearby.

The orcas swam past the snorkelers to take a look, but didn't display any aggressive behavior toward the humans.
