Newbie Kayakers Get the Thrill of a Lifetime

Beach-goers and kaykers got the surprise of a lifetime at Vancouver's Jericho Beach yesterday when a small pod of as many as six transient orcas came in close to shore. (Check out this photo and others at cbc.ca)
Part of the CBC's report featured some quotes from kayakers taking their first lessons:
Kayak students Lisa Bechard and Jack Belleghem also spotted the pod.
"It was amazing, it was incredible, and our kayak instructor said he's been doing this for six years and he has never seen orcas, so today, he said, was pretty remarkable," said Bechard.

The orcas may have been part of pod T49 and came close to shore to hunt area seals.
