Screencap from video by Silken Laumann/Twitter

In a video that has been viewed over 152,900 times, a pod of transient orcas can be seen swimming right by a dock in Brentwood Bay, much to the surprise and wonder of locals in the area.

The encounter happened on Saturday, August 3rd and was shared on Twitter by Olympic rower Silken Laumann.

In the video, Laumann can be heard remarking that she had never seen something like this in the 10 years that she’s lived in the Saanich Inlet.
