img_3390October 2016 marks 37 years since Kandu II passed away. Rest in Peace KanduII

In August 1971, a group of 3 orca were captured off Penn Cove; one male and two females.
The male, later known as Kandu II, was first purchased by the Florida Delphin Show in Bremen, Germany, and was kept there for 20 days before being sold to Marineland Canada.

Kandu II arrived at the park in September 1971, and was the first orca to be put on display at the park. It was not long until he was trained and performing in shows alongside the parks Bottlenose Dolphins.

He remained alone at the park until 1973, when a female named Kandy* arrived at the park. Both appeared to get along well, but Kandy* died about a month after her arrival.

In 1975, two more whales were purchased; Knootka* and Kanduke*.  Kandu II and Knootka* went on to perform alongside each other for several years. The three whales briefly received a new tank mate, Katina, before she was sold to SeaWorld.

Today she resides at the Orlando park.  Unfortunately, Kandu II died after contracting Pneumonia in October 1979.
