RANGERS have visited the site of the third dead killer whale found in a creek north of Kingfisher Bay.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service acting regional director Sunshine and Fraser Coast Peter Wright said on Saturday, it appeared the animal had probably been dead for a day or two.

On Sunday, the pod of killer whales was continuing to congregate in deep waters near Little Woody Island on the western side of Fraser Island.

He said the whales were showing positive signs in their behaviour such as breaching and socialising.

The department confirmed there were 11 killer whales in the pod at the top of the Great Sandy Strait.

Earlier counts indicated there were at least nine killer whales in the pod.

Vessels are reminded to keep at least 300m away from the killer whales and not to rev boat engines or cut across the path of the killer whales.
