Dolphin And Orca Whale Pods Spotted In Departure Bay (VIDEO)

It seems even B.C.'s sea creatures are reveling in this gorgeous weather.

A pod of dolphins and orca whales were spotted in Departure Bay on Monday, and one lucky viewer caught the whole thing on video.

Both pods are seen swimming close to the surface of the water, which was just off the coast of Nanaimo.

UPDATE: The orca pod was attacking the dolphin pod, The Province reports.

In a moment pretty much out of "Free Willy," the video captures the orcas leaping into the air with the grace and beauty that only whales possess (followed by everyone present gasping in awe).

What a province we live in.
