Namu, the Killer Whale (re-issued as Namu, My Best Friend) is a 1966 American film about a killer whale (orca) being studied by a local marine biologist and initially feared by local townspeople.[1] The fictional story was filmed on location in the San Juan Islands and at Rich Cove near Port Orchard in the US state of Washington.[2] The film 'starred' the orca Namu, one of the first orcas ever displayed in captivity.
