Nelson waterfront 4269

On 3 October 2009, my wife watched two orca hunting just a few metres from this very spot. A large stingray jumped from the water, crashed against this sea wall and hunched up against it. The two orca tried , but could only approach to within 5 metres before the water became too shallow. The orca stayed in the vicinity for about two hours, causing serious traffic jams!
