Orca in Wellington Harbour

Postby Michael Szabo » Fri Oct 28, 2022 9:08 am

A pod of up to 7 Orca were seen in Wellington Harbour yesterday at various locations off Scorching Bay, Petone Beach, Eastbourne, Matiu/Somes Island, and Oriental Bay. My photos were taken between Freyberg beach and Port Nicholson yacht club marina.
