Today we went snorkeling with Sea Lions at Los Islotes in the Sea of Cortez. It was the best snorkeling I have ever done, and we have done some pretty good snorkeling lately.
As soon as we jumped in the water the Sea Lions swam over and started playing with us. They would bite on our fins and playfully bump in to us. The males don’t play at all. swim by and look really intimidating. I was swimming over to a Sea Lion when it started barking at me. As I was swimming away a male bumped in to me as if to say “I’m the boss”! After that I stayed a little further away. Aside from that, it was the best swim ever!
