Steller Sea Lion Haulout

Sea Lions near Vancouver Island








Sea lions are a little larger than harbour seals. Their length is 2.4 to 2.8 m (7.75 to 9.25 ft) and they weight 1,133 kg (2,500 lbs.) and have average life span in the wild of 18 years for (males) and 30 (females). The sea lions have started to stay our viewing area all year but are more abundant in the summer. The rocky island haulouts in spring and fall may have over one hundred sea lions.
