Pod of orcas surprises boat passengers off South Ronaldsay, Orkney Graeme Spence

A pod of orcas surprised a boat of fishermen during a trip round the Orkney Islands.

Graeme Spence captured a video of the Busta 65 pod off Hoxa Head in South Ronaldsay on Sunday afternoon as he stood aboard the Cordock of Orca Ventures charter boat.

The 31-year-old, from Kirkwall, joked their surprise appearance provoked some “fruity language” in the excitement.
