Killer Whale Video: Pod Of Up To 20 Animals Puts On Amazing Show For Tourist Boat

Even killer whales need to have fun sometimes, or so seems to be the message of a new video showing a pod of the mighty mammals playing in the wake of a tourist boat off the coast of Mexico.

Laura and Rich Howard were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary with a scuba dive off of La Paz, Mexico, when their dive master instructed all divers to return to the boat quickly.

The reason for his haste soon became apparent, as a pod of up to 20 orcas (killer whales) began following the boat and playing in its wake.

In an interview with CNN, Rich Howard described how the massive animals got within "maybe 6-8 inches," of their boat.

The whales reportedly followed the boat for around an hour.
