Muscat: Killer Whales, also known as Orcas, were spotted off the coast of Musandam over the weekend.

AbdulWahid Al Kimzari, Head of the Nature Conservation Department at the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs in the region, stated that the whale sightings are extremely rare.

“Within the last ten years, there has been very little if no documentation of these whales in Oman’s waters. There was only one sighting last year, and again this year. But, we have not been able to conduct studies on the whales and their reasons for entering Omani waters because they are so rare,” Al Kimzari said.

According to Al Kimzari, tourists from Wilyat Daba spotted the Killer Whales first while on a boat ride in the water.
