CHATHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - Boaters off the coast of Cape Cod had a whale of a time on the water recently.

The men were fishing for tuna when they spotted a pod of orcas on Tuesday.

At least four whales were in the area.

The whales swam around the boat, breaching a couple of times.

The fishermen said the whales stayed with them for a while, coming and going as they fished.

According to marine biologists at the New England Aquarium, the orcas are “rarely seen this close to shore in New England waters.”
