Killer Whales Visit Los Angeles
Orcas are a rare sight off of the southern California coast but they do pass by from time to time. This photo was taken in January as a pod of 30 or so of the sleek creatures were spotted on a whale watching cruise from the Aquarium of the Pacific. Now is the best time of year to spot cetaceans up close in their natural environment as they journey through the channel. Make a day of spotting whales with a private tour of Beverly Hills followed by a drive down to Long Beach for a whale watching cruise.
