SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Does this cookie picture show up in world now? Passengers on the ocean odyssey were thrilled on Sunday when they came across the killer whale in the waters about five miles offshore.

They say the whale appeared to be a young male. He was also seen in the area just a few weeks ago.

Orcas have been reported offshore a few times in recent years, but they are rare in our local waters.

Almost three-thousand killer whales are thought to live in the Northeastern Pacific, from California to the Bering Sea.
