Orca pod just metres from shore at Auckland’s Kohimarama Beach

August 28, 2016

A pod of orcas are still delighting swimmers at Auckland’s Kohimarama Beach.

Paddleboarder Sam Thom was preparing to paddle to Browns Island at 6.30am today when he spotted the creatures – and luckily, he had his drone on hand to capture this amazing footage.

“It was great to see the orca coming right up beside us and touching the boards,” Thom, 28, told ONE News Now. “We were all both excited and nervous to be so close to them. Definitely a special start to spring.”
