An expert has said the 'rare' encounter raises a lot of questions. 9News

A close and "rare" orca encounter played out in the waters off NSW yesterday, with the apex predator suspected of hunting a pod of humpback whales making their southbound migration to Antarctica.

Shortly after this close encounter a "massive" pod of humpback whales were spied, and would not leave the vessel.Jodie Lowe, from Port Jet Cruises, captured an incredible photo as one of the orcas breached. While she's awaiting video confirmation, she said if it proves true it provides an invaluable glimpse into orca behavior.

"The presence of orca along the east coast is not a daily occurrence and the observation of whale predation is extra interesting," she added.
