January 1, Orcas Are Coordinating To Attack Boats?!



One of the most decisive battles in European history occurred – the Battle of… READ MORE ABOUT THIS HISTORIC DAY HERE

Navigating the high seas for more than two decades, seasoned sailor Captain Dan Kriz has had his share of adventures. But nothing had prepared him for the recent encounter with a pod of orca whales, seemingly bent on perfecting their boat-attacking skills. We’ve heard tales of man versus beast, but this one, unfolding right in the Strait of Gibraltar, is worthy of a Hemingway novel.

Orca whales, dubbed as “the ocean’s top predator” by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, aren’t new to Kriz. But their targeted aggression towards his yacht, not once but twice, is something that could unsettle the sturdiest of sea dogs.

During his first encounter, a pack of eight orcas toyed with his boat, causing rudder damage that left him stranded and needing a tow to a Spanish marina. The video evidence shows the orcas, acting like cunning sea bandits, zeroing in on the vessel’s rudders. It’s an eerie sight, seeing these majestic creatures, with their distinctive black and white bodies, causing deliberate harm.

Fate, or the orcas, had it in for Captain Kriz again when he crossed their path during a voyage to the Canary Islands. With an uncanny sense of déjà vu, he watched as the whales, silent this time, destroyed his boat’s rudders. They acted with purpose, as if executing a well-rehearsed plan. “Looks like they knew exactly what they are doing,” said Kriz, respecting their cunning despite the dire situation.

One theory behind these disturbing events points to a female orca teaching others to target ships, possibly out of revenge for a past injury. Sounds almost like a plot of a high seas thriller, doesn’t it? However, the reality is far more ominous for sailors navigating these waters.

Despite his perilous encounters, Captain Kriz acknowledges this, asserting that we are in their territory. He’s right, we ought to respect their space. As we traverse the wide-open seas, we must remember that we’re only guests in the orcas’ aquatic realm.

    We only believe that “WE” are the most intelligent, Orca’s are most likely far more intelligent than human beings? One fact for sure, ORCA’S aren’t doing this crap for money, which every damn human being has a price for doing, so it seems.?!

    Wow! Two dangerous things. ORCAs, and Joe Biden.

    One theory could be that the military has trained these orcas to attack boats. Our military has been studying whales for years and they are very intelligent.

    Since it seems the rudders are their goal to kill, do the rudders look like seals either in shape or movement? Even a slight resemblance might be the reason
