Orca in Lyttelton Harbour delight

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 24/03/2017

A pod or orca have put on a show for people on a ferry in Lyttleton Harbour, near Christchurch.

"We have lots of Orca! What a treat for all of our passengers," Diamond Harbour Ferry posted on Facebook.

Orca were in Lyttelton Harbour all morning on Friday, says ferry operator Black Cat Cruises.

"We saw them on multiple crossings...what a dream!"

The shots showed orca up very close to the back of the ferry, which slowed down, and the passengers filming the spectacle.

There are believed to be two large pods in the harbour, which is unusual.
