Fuck that. I recently finished my PADI Open Water Scuba diving ticket and two days I had to my sea dives it was horrible weather, freezing cold and the visibility under water was god awful. As I sat there 10 meters below the surface, freezing my tits off and thinking of all the places I'd rather be (prision, watching Boc and Serp double team a camel dressed as Fluttershy, listening to a Taylor Swift concert followed by a lecture of alternative art by Lady Gaga and "Im a stupid hoe" girl) I had this horrible paranoid thought of "holy shit how scary would it be if a killer whale appeared right now", I just had these visions of those great big jaws appearing out of what would be the underwater version of heavy fog. Needless to say a little pee came out.
Those Orca are clearly playing, not hunting. Given they can keep pace with the boat ... nay, swim faster, they could attack if they wanted. They are essentially giant dolphins; just as smart and just as playful. They'd either ignore you or may try to help you if you fell in.
Think of it this way. Sharks attack surfers when they are paddling because the surfers' profiles look like seals. Killer Whales eat seals as well, going so far as to launch themselves onto a beach to catch them at times. As seen here:
Yet; have you ever heard of Killer Whales attacking surfers? They are big dolphins and if not provoked won't harm humans. I consider the Sea World incident tragic but something happened in that animal's past to make it hate humans. Just like certain Pitt-bulls learn to attack but many more are friendly; just have a bad breed reputation.
