On board Sanctuary Cruises out of Moss Landing. This pack of killer whales (4-5 including one young calf) hunted and killed a harbor seal near our boat. Intense. Sadly this iPhone photo was the only one I took that day.

Description from Wikipedia

Oceanic dolphins are members of the cetacean family Delphinidae. These marine mammals are related to whales and porpoises. They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves. As the name implies, these dolphins tend to be found in the open seas, unlike the river dolphins, although a few species such as the Irrawaddy dolphin are coastal or riverine.

No range data available.
