We anchored at a colony of 600 sea lions and donned moist fits. It was an exhilarating and surreal expertise to snorkel amongst them! For two hours we have been surrounded by a cacophony of barking, honking and belching sea lions. It was startling when the large males swam round. I cherished the infants.
