Thanks to Jane Mather for sending photos to Kapi-Mana News, who have shared them on Facebook.

Orca were seen swimming near the Plimmerton Boating Club at about 1.30pm, Tues 1 December 2015.

Jane said there was a mum, dad and baby and they all came close into the shore at Karehana Bay.

1 March 2012. What a thrill to see this pod along our coast. People lined the shore in the rain to watch them.
