Giant Orca - Killer Whale Statue

Go behind the storefronts on 101 to Aquarium Village! Enjoy the open air promenade with pirate statues and pirate village storefronts -- a free stroll that the family will enjoy. Bring your camera!

Giant Orca - Killer Whale Statue

Along with many of the other oddities at Aquarium Village (Nessie, the Nautical-themed Houses, etc.) outside of Newport, Oregon is this statue of a giant orca killer whale. Not sure what this is supposed to signify or if it's just there to look cool, but it does stand out pretty well.

Shortly after climbing on it, a security truck rolled around and promptly told me to get off.
