We passed a very scared seal on a small flat piece of ice with four adult orcas and one baby orca circling it and spyhopping - poking just their heads up to look at the seal.
Thanks to the food-rich mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and warm Atlantic Ocean waters, humpback and fin whales can be seen diving, breaching, spyhopping (a whale slowly rises its head up out of the water) and lobtailing (when a whale slaps its flukes loudly onto the water surface) off the Virginia Beach coast each winter.
