A group of tourists was visiting Indonesia and after talking with the locals, they found out that one of the coolest things that they can do is to hop on a boat and go find orcas. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and without giving it too much thought, the tourists decided to go out in the ocean. Little did they know, something strange was waiting for them in the middle of the ocean and good thing they had a camera with them because otherwise, no one would believe what happened.
We think that everyone is going to agree that going to visit exotic places is the best way to relax during a vacation. What better way to leave the crowded city behind other than to relax by the beach and have a Pina Colada?
Indonesia is known for many things such as the rich culture of the locals and extraordinary cuisine but what makes it really special is the exotic beaches that it has to offer. This is why millions of people visit Indonesia each year.
Our story begins when a group of tourists arrived in Indonesia ready to have the time of their lives. They spent the first days visiting the city but after that was done, they were ready to do something a little bit more exciting.
The first exciting adventure that they went on was scuba diving. Seeing the underwater world from up close in the clear waters of Indonesia was amazing. However, this wasn’t the best thing that they could experience in Indonesia and they knew it.
The tourists decided to talk to the locals and ask them what’s the best and most fun activity that they can do during their trip. To their surprise, every local said the same thing. They all advised the tourists to rent a boat and to go on the ocean where they can see dolphins and orcas.
The tourists didn’t waste any time and the next day they rented a boat. As they were getting further away from the shore, all they could think about was how cool is it going to be when they are face to face with a giant orca.
Luckily, the captain of the boat knew a couple of special routes that he could take where orcas are known for popping out of the water. The tourists were in for quite a surprise.
It didn’t take long for the tourists to notice an orca. However, something strange was going on because the orca didn’t move at all. It looked like it was stuck.
The boat’s captain got closer to the orca and he noticed that the huge underwater beast is stuck in fishing gear. The tourists were terrified and they didn’t know what to do in order to help the poor orca get out.
As the tourists were talking with each other, one of the boat’s crewmen jumped inside the water. He wanted to take the fishing net off the orca so that the underwater beast can swim away back to its family.
The orca had tried to get out of the fishing net by its own and it did more harm than good. The fishing net was all around its body and the Indonesian man who jumped in the water needed to figure out a way to swim underneath the giant orca.
The most amazing thing about this entire encounter is that the orca somehow knew that the man wanted to help it get free. The reason why we are saying this is because the orca stayed calm and steady as the man was swimming beneath it.
Now that the Indonesian man managed to pull off the fishing net, he still needed to take it out of the water so he called a friend to try and pick it up with a long stick. Do you think this will work?
The man on the boat managed to grab the fishing net after a couple of tries and the orca was ready to leave. However, something totally unexpected happened next.
Instead of swimming away as fast as it could, the orca stayed around for a couple of more minutes. It was its own way of saying goodbye to the tourists and thank you to the man who took of the fishing net.
As previously noted in the beginning, the tourists were clever to bring a camera with them because otherwise, no one would believe what they experienced while visiting Indonesia.
If there is one thing that we can be sure about, then it has to be the fact that the tourists received their full money’s worth! They paid a ticket to see an orca from up close, and this is exactly what they got.
On the downside of things, this story also shows us the type of problems that people who live in Indonesia have to deal with. Just wonder what would have happened if the boat filled with tourists didn’t pass by?
Nonetheless, we have to give praise to the captain of the boat and to his crewman for risking their lives to save the trapped orca.
We are glad to let everyone know that our story has a happy ending. The orca was set free and the tourists got to experience the once in a lifetime adventure that they wanted.
