Where to find orca

Orca are the most widely distributed mammal on earth with the exception of humans. Its distribution is patchy however and it is more commonly seen at the poles and in cooler waters. They prefer deeper water but can be found in shallow bays and estuaries, and in inland seas. Orca can be found all throughout New Zealand’s coastline. They come to Picton to feed on Stingrays. We see them between 10-15 times a year. Best to go on our Wildlife and Dolphin Tour to find them:
