I LOVE BEING UNDERWATER and being able to see marine wildlife up close. I’m extremely jealous when my co-workers get to snorkel with manta rays in Hawaii or swim with whale sharks in Mexico, but being in the water with orcas (also called killer whales, for your information) is not on my bucket list — These creatures are apex predators who eat whale calves for breakfast, and I’m a lot smaller than a whale calf.
Andreas Heide, does not have the same problem as I do. While riding his subwing off the coast of Norway, he was joined by a pod of orcas and does not seem to sweat it one bit. Give this video a watch and let us know if you’d like to find yourself in Andreas’ flippers.
