Travel enthusiast Michelle Feis meets a set of more than 20 killer whales while she was out kayaking with a friend at the end of August.

The video was uploaded onto social media on September 1 and shows Feis and her friend in their kayaks near the shore when a group of killer whales swim up to them.

In the video, Feis can be heard screaming with glee as the whales swim right up to and underneath the kayaks.
