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

Orcas in the UAE
 
While swimming just off the cost of the UAE, the group spotted two orcas emerging from the water, who then decided to join the group for a swim themselves. 

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.
