Orca seen again off Canterbury coast
16 January 2014
The second pod of Orca seen off Banks Peninsula this month was an 'amazing experience' for guests and staff on a Black Cat Cruises trip in Akaroa this afternoon.
It is quite rare to see Orca off the Canterbury coast but to see two pods in just over a week is really special, Black Cat Cruises Guide Clare Ruddenklau said.
The small pod of several larger adults and two juveniles were seen near the entrance to Akaroa Harbour. "They were heading south at a reasonable clip," Ruddenklau said.
Orca make routine trip memorable for Black Cat staff

A pod of ten Orca made a routine trip off Banks Peninsula all the more memorable for three Black Cat Cruise staff yesterday.
The company's Canterbury Cat was heading from Lyttelton to Akaroa to provide cover for its Nature Cruises operation for a day while the Black Cat Catamaran had some essential maintenance work done.
The staff on board were delighted to see the large fin of a bull Orca in the distance just off Hickery Bay which is about half way between Lyttelton and Akaroa, Black Cat Cruises Group Operations Manager Paul Milligan said.
