Paddleboarder Rich German of Laguna Beach, California had his wish finally come true he encountered orca whales in the wild!
After hearing that killer whales were spotted in the area, he took to the water in hopes of capturing the creatures on his GoPro, and he did.
Over the next few days, German found himself trying to decide whether or not to post his video. However, German decided to put the video on Youtube in order to help raise awareness for the animals.
The footage of the five orcas is beautiful and it reminds us of how much better off these animals are in the wild as opposed to captivity.
