Yes, you are reading well. You can see orcas in Spain, in the Strait of Gibraltar.
Even close to the coast, even you can see them from the beach!
Our dear friend Mario Morcillo believed in this idea, he studied and shared his passion. Mario Morcillo taught us that there is no need to travel as far as Patagonia or New Zealand to observe killer whales. We learned to know and love those waters, just like he did, like the Phoenicians did, like the Orcas do.
From ancient times, in Cadiz coast, between Cape Grace y Cape Trafalgar, the show repeats again and again during the Almadraba time. Unlike other Orcas species feeding on marine mammals, the killer Whales visiting our shores feed mainly of Tuna fish. They are perfectly aware that billions of them come across the Strait to lay eggs in the Mediterranean Sea and they come for them around the nets of the Almadraba.
