A cute orca whale performs some backstrokes during a whale watching trip at sunset just off Northern Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.

The water surrounding this orca whale looks like molten gold during sunset. This cute orca is excited after having killed a sea lion and was doing backstrokes, spy hopping, tail slapping etc.

The behaviour of killer whales is variable and quite entertaining for visitors on a whale watching tour from Northern Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
