Went to go see the sea lions on seal bay only about 20m away #seals #sealions
This weekend I got to share the ocean with these beautiful sea lions. They were so curious, friendly, and simply magical. I have been feeling so inspired by all of the free divers I follow on Instagram lately so being in the ocean with these beautiful creatures felt nothing short of amazing and it definitely won't be the last of my ocean encounters ✨
Saw some sea lions and Greyah yelled “puppies!” 😂 I suppose we need to read up a bit more on animals not found in the mid west- for her sake 😉
First day volunteering with some sea lion pups.

on the right behaviour during seal pup season! It is vital for pinnipeds to rest and nurse within their colonies on land! Please don't disturb seals for your selfies and keep a safe distance at all times. Otherwise seal moms may abandon their pups! #marinewildlifetourism #sealselfie #sealseason #noaa
Penguins were probably our favorite, and of course we loved the seals & sea lions so much too!!
