Otter Seeks Refuge On Man’s Boat As He Barely Escapes Jaws Of Killer Whale

A close encounter between a killer whale and his prey, an otter, is something 37-year-old John Dornellas recently experienced up close and personal.

Donellas, who works with an Alaskan exploration company and provides area boat trips, saw a near-death experience right before his very eyes.

Dornellas was out on his boat when he saw a commotion taking place in the water. He realized something was rapidly swimming closer and closer to his boat to avoid being eaten by a killer whale. The whale’s dorsal fin can be seen closing in as an otter hurriedly tries to avoid being killed.

All of a sudden, the otter pops up out of the water and takes refuge on the boat with Donellas, who cannot believe what he is seeing.

Are you kidding me,” Donellas says aloud as he films the encounter. “Come on up bud,” he tells the otter.

For the next several minutes, the otter stays safely aboard the boat as the killer whale circles his prey. At one point, the otter goes back into the water and then changes his mind in favor of the boat.

The very close encounter lasted a while, as the otter eventually plunged back into the water once the killer whale distanced himself from the boat.

Watch this unbelievable experience by pressing play on the video below. We are glad this little guy had a happy ending!
