Orcas swim into False Creek

An orca pod swam into downtown Vancouver's False Creek on Wednesday, to delight of those lucky enough to catch the sight.

Twitter and Instagram users posted several images and videos of the transient killer whales as they swam within sight of Science World between the Cambie and Granville Street bridges and off to Sunset Beach.

Vancouver Aquarium staff told CTV News the orcas are believed to be transients, not residents, because of their straighter, more pointed dorsal fins.

The orcas are known to hunt for seals in shallow water.
