These offshore orcas were only discovered in the mid-1990s and are rarely seen anywhere on the planet. To see them in Monterey Bay is extra special. And where they went after this encounter near Moss Landing is anybody’s guess: "Seventy to 100 orcas come into the bay for a day, then they're gone," says marine biologist Chase Dekker. "As far as we are aware, they could be down toward LA, they could be up toward Oregon, they could be 500 miles offshore—it's kind of a mystery."
