The Most Famous Cetaceans

Orcas, or more commonly known as killer whales, are one of the most famous cetaceans on Earth. Their unmistakable large black bodies with white undersides and white spots above and behind the eyes are characteristic of these very social animals. They live in complex family groups, or pods, of up to 50 whales. The intricate dynamics of these pods include adult whales teaching the young many important skills needed to survive in the ocean. This knowledge is passed on from generation to generation. Encountering a pod of orcas while scuba diving is an experience like no other.
