"When we decided to leave the area the whale attacked the sea lion and tossed him 20 feet into the air!"
Orcas -- also referred to as killer whales -- don't pose any direct threat to humans, but they love to dine on sea lions.
After tossing prey into the air, orcas typically finish their hunt by delivering a powerful blow to the head.
The incredible footage was captured on August 15 of this year.
