Dramatic footage of free diver and killer whales in the Arctic


During the shooting of a documentary in arctic Norway, we got up close and personal with killer whales similar to whale watching california but a bit more intense. Rather than ferocious killers, orcas are gentle and inquisitive, at least when it comes to human encounters. Hundreds of orcas and humpback whales gathers in the Tromsø region in the period of November to January, to feed on the overwintering herring.

This one minute video resumes what the photographer and filmmaker David Gonzalez Buendia (buendiaphotography.com) captured in one single week, in the making of a documentary about orcas in the wild using the expedition sailing vessel Barba as a platform.



  1. It’s really surprising that whales can be friendly too with the human beings; I mean I have always watched and heard about the deadly attacks made by whales on human beings. It's good to see this humane aspect of whales.
