Fishing crew encounters orca whale swimming with dolphins off Cape Cod

PROVINCETOWN, Mass. — A Cape Cod fishing crew witnessed a rare sight in the water off Provincetown on Sunday: An orca whale swimming alongside dolphins.

Captain Kevin Simon says the crew of the Simonsez was fishing for tuna when they spotted a “large fin” among the pod of dolphins.

“Never know what you’ll see, this made up for a tuna-less day today,” Simon said.

The crew shared photos and videos of the orca on Instagram.
