Woke up, put on mask and fins to go scout out the sea lion colony on Roca Ben. Yesterday, the seals had come in a frenzy. I had a phenomenal time swimming with them. They were very interactive and curious. So, this morning I wanted to return to the sea safari. I jumped off the stern, swam towards the morning barks on shore. Not twenty strides into my mission did I catch the attention of a couple teenage sea lions. Rising to the surface for air, one sea lion popped up so close I think he startled himself! We shared enough time just to lock eyes and he was off with a splash.
I spent the rest of my swim bobbing on the surface checking out a bull hearding his clan, females, teenagers and at least a dozen pups. Not a bad way to start the day before work 🙂 We are having a ball on the boat. It’s easy with interested, lovely guests and a super friendly crew.
