Steller sea lion

Eumetopias jubatus


I was surprised to see these sea lions so high up on a rock. It must take them quite a bit of effort to get up there. These all seemed smaller, maybe just females and immature males... Not really sure. These are quite common around Kodiak Island.


Large rock in the water close to Afognak Island. I didn't see any Orca in this bay during the few days we were here, so I think this is a little bit safer for them compared to some spots I have seen sea lions along Kodiak's coast which aren't so far up in a bay.
