Abstract: A rare sighting of five killer whales (Orcinus orca), including one
juvenile, occurred on 20 March 2000 during an aerial survey of waters west
of the Hawaiian island of Ni'ihau. The sighting occurred ca. 11 km west of
Kamalino Bay on Ni'ihau, at 21 049' N, 160020' W. Killer whales are not unknown
in Hawaiian waters, but the most recent confirmed sighting on record
for Hawaiian waters was in 1979.
