Video from off the Gulf Coast of Texas shows a family of killer whales surrounding a boat full of fishermen.

The group was on an overnight trip in the Gulf of Mexico when they saw about a hundred orcas and 30 of them escorted the boat for several miles.

The captain says he frequently sees dolphins and pilot whales but never orcas.
