Sea lions don’t always play well with others, so we’d be more than a little uneasy to be in these divers flippers. But that doesn’t make their experience of being surrounded by a group of sea lions any less incredible.
“During the winter months, thousands of Sea Lions gather at Norris Rock for the herring spawn,” said one of the divers. “Some of these Sea Lions have the same size heads as grizzly bears. They appear to be aggressive but in fact, they are quite gentle.”
Essentially referring to them as grizzly bears with flippers definitely wouldn’t help us feel at ease in this situation.
