A rare orca whale sitting off the central California coast was caught on tape.

This group of orca whales bumped noses with a boat near San Luis Obispo on Sunday afternoon.

The people were bird watching when ten whales swam up to the boat.

This is only the third recorded orca whale siting off the San Luis Obispo shores since the 1950's. Experts believe the whales were probably in the area looking for food.
