Boaters Capture Video Of Orca's Extraordinary Leap

Occasionally, people are able to experience significant moments by witnessing unique animals in nature. This is exactly what happened to the boaters who captured a video of an orca’s extraordinary leap.

Miguel Cuevas of Cabo Pulmo Divers was in the right place at the right time. This scuba diving company is based out of Mexico on the Gulf of California. The video captures the incredible and unexpected moment of various whales jumping out of the water near multiple boats.

There is one splash, then a second, followed by the grand finale of a baby and larger orca completely coming out of the water and diving back down. The boaters celebrate and are in awe of what they experienced and just so happened to catch it on film. After the big jumps, you can see the pod of orcas continuing to swim, likely feeding in a circle.

According to Victoria Whale Watching, killer whales are very social and travel in family pods. Based on their scientific observations, they believe these orcas jump to catch prey and even “porpoise” out of the water to celebrate.

Although a seemingly rare occasion, when this happens, it is a sight worth seeing. Check out the video to see this massive animal soar through the air. Reflect on the beauty of God’s creation.

For those on the boat, it is no doubt to have been a top experience in their lifetimes. The video has had more than 144,000 views on Instagram and it has only been posted for one week. There is something very powerful about even seeing a video of an animal of that size showcase abilities. It reminds us of how great God is and how all of creation was made by Him and for His glory.

“How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.” Psalm 104:24-25
