Fog Bound Stellar Sea Lions

Stellar sea lions

August whale watching can have some interesting mornings as the warm days will produce fog for the following morning. The fog may be patchy and is gone by noon but it does not prevent us from leaving the dock as we have radar and GPS. The fog does produce some unique photos such as this one with stellar sea lions on the rocks near Vancouver Island’s Telegraph Cove. The sea lions are now in the area most of the summer whereas in past years they were only passing through in June and September on their migration between California and Alaska.
