Harbour seals are found in British Columbia often in coastal waters, estuaries and river systems. The Pacific harbour seal inhabits the B.C. coast. The adult seal may reach a length of 1.6 – 1.9 m (5 –6 feet) and weigh from 60 – 120 kg (132- 265 lbs.), while ranging in colour from brownish to black with a speckled pattern. Your guide often takes them for granted because they are so abundant so remind them if you want a good picture.
Yes this is the same grizzly from April 21st posting. This time we managed to get her without the triplets but it is still obvious that she is a nursing mother. Sitting where she is in the deeper water just in front of the viewing platform the cubs are on the bank about seven meters (yards) behind her back. At times it seems like she moves into the deeper water for a few minutes of quiet.
