Video: Rare Footage of Orcas Off the UAE's Coast
Any fan of the magnificent creatures will no doubt be pleased to watch this special footage, straight from the UAE's waters.
It's extremely rare that anyone gets the opportunity to witness orcas in their natural habitat.
But a lucky group of divers swimming near the Musandam Peninsula
this week were able to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity
While swimming just off the cost of the UAE, the group spotted two orcas emerging from the water,

The video was shared by Kirsty Hill,
who was on a diving trip with the Dibba-based Nomad Ocean Adventures.
The group were near Limah on the Musandam Peninsla, when the whales joined them.
