Whales of the Silver Bank - Spy Hopping

spinning head breach A spy hop is when the whale raises its head out of the water, typically oriented vertically. Presumably, the behavior is done in order to see, or otherwise determine, what is going on above the surface. Traveling whales will spy hop by turning on their side, exposing one eye above the surface as they go by.
