Seal avoids hunting orcas by jumping in nearby boat

Powell River, British Columbia (about fifty miles north northwest of Vancouver, BC):  Sometimes the whales win and sometimes the seal wins. It is the circle of life and orcas have to eat too. Still, I have to root for the underdog in this case.  

A lot of the resident orcas in this part of British Columbia are fish eaters (groups of orcas have different cultures and feeding patterns). Transient pods will kill and eat seals. Fish eating orcas may kill seals because they are competing with them.

But this young guy got to live another day.
