This is called a spy hop. Apparently Orcas (from the dolphin family by the way) are the only ones that do this. Supposedly they are just poking their head above water to take a look around....
I'm not sure how anyone would know this because I've never had very good luck getting answers from the whales about why they do the things they do... However, it is really cool to get to see Killer Whales.

This time of year we see a lot of orcas. Male orcas have a very tall fin as you can see above. This fin is probably 6-8 feet tall.
Reid started fishing again in either March or April. Fresh halibut and crab is yummy.
