Sausalito boat tour spots rare killer whale pod off Farallones

"Whale watchers on a Sausalito-based sightseeing boat spotted a rare pod of killer whales near the Farallon Islands that was likely in search of food 800 miles from home.

The pod of about 40 orcas - which usually stays in the waters off Washington and British Columbia - was spotted last Saturday by a group on an SF Bay Whale Watching boat 19 miles west of the Golden Gate Bridge."
