Pod Of Orcas Spotted Just Outside Golden Gate

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS) — A group of whale watchers spotted a pod of killer whales about 10 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge Saturday.

This was the second time in three days these same orcas were spotted. There  was a sighting off the Monterey coast on Friday.

KCBS’ Mark Seelig Reports:

According to members of the group, 12-15 orcas surrounded their boat. There were a few calves in the group. For about 2 hours, the pod swam and played while the group of 40, or so people looked on. Amid all the excitement, they managed to videotape the whales and share them with CBS San Francisco.  The video is courtesy of Andy Katzman.
