WatchFive Star Whale Watching captured this video of seven transient orcas in Victoria's Harbour on July 23, 2020.

Seven transient orcas were seen in Victoria’s harbour on Thursday.

The transient orcas (also known as Bigg’s killer whales) were seen at around 2:40 p.m.

Five Star Whale Watching captured the video about two to three miles offshore during an afternoon tour.

The company identified the pod as T46Bs, a T68 and a T68A.

According to Five Star Whale Watching, while transient orcas aren’t seen every day in Victoria’s harbour, it’s not unusual to see the orcas hunting for seals, sea lions and porpoises closer to shore.
