'Coolest Thing I've Ever Seen': Orcas Breach Near Boat in Texas

Boaters on a fishing trip were treated to a surprise show of orcas breaching near Galveston Island, Texas, on March 17.

Captain Matthew Smith filmed a video that shows his customers cheering as the orcas appear near his boat.

“It’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” a man says in the video.

According to local media, about 250 orcas live in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Credit: Matthew Smith via Storyful
