We spotted some False Killer Whales in Maalaea Bay. What a treat? They are the third largest member of the oceanic dolphin family and they live in temperate and tropical waters throughout the world. As its name implies, the false killer whale shares characteristics, such as appearance, with the more widely known Orca or Killer Whale. These whales tend to form strong social bonds and are usually found in groups of ten to twenty. They are a very rare sighting as their numbers have been declining over the years. Researchers estimate that there are less then 300 left in Hawaiian waters.
