Photo: Orca Whale Splashing Tail Vancouver Island

A playful male Orca whale shows his excitement by splashing the water with his tail, all with a backdrop of the scenic Vancouver Island coastline.

One of the typical forms of behaviour of an orca whale is splashing the water with its tail - also known as tail slapping.

It is sometimes possible to see an orca whale tail slapping, spyhopping, breaching or any of their typical behaviours during a whale watching tour off Northern Vancouver. The tail splashing can sometimes make quite a loud noise.
