Re: sea lion chasing our sailboat in seattle

I've talked to divers who have had them come up behind them and grab their swim fins like it was a game. I think that would cause me to wet my wet suit even more. We get them up around La Conner now and then and they're pretty thick in the Cattle Pass area. The big ones look like they could be 8 to 10 feet long.

Saw an elephant seal one time out at Minor Island. Wouldn't have believed they were in our waters if I hadn't seen it myself
