A penguin escaped a flock of killer whales by jumping into a boat with tourists

Matt Karsten and his wife Anna are travel bloggers who blog about their adventures. They recently witnessed a real chase.

During a tour of the Gerlash Strait in Antarctica, a flock of killer whales suddenly appeared in the water, chasing a penguin. The poor bird was leaving the chase and simply did not know where to hide. Fortunately, a group of boating tourists got in the way of the penguin trying to escape. And in them the northern bird saw a way of its salvation.

The penguin jumped out of the water and hid in it again. The killer whales pursued him and did not give up. The bird tried to jump onto one of the boats, but hit its head on the side and fell into the water. The video was interrupted at this point, and the audience probably thought that the killer whales still overtook their prey after the persecution.

But then the video resumes, and the audience sees underwater footage with killer whales. Further, the author of the video again demonstrates the continuation of the chase. The penguin is still escaping from pursuit, the killer whales are swimming after him. Then the bird makes another attempt to be on the boat, and it is successful. True, one of the passengers had to support the penguin with his hand.

Next, the rescued penguin was shot in close-up. He, not afraid of people and clearly feeling like a real lucky man, calmly stood in the boat and looked around. The killer whales circled between the boats for some time, but then disappeared from view, realizing that today they would not be able to catch a bird. The penguin waited a bit, and then dived into the strait and, most likely, went home.
