But I digress. The most interesting natural site we encountered was when we pulled up to the floating bait boxes in the bay. There are several companies that have large containers chained together and floating in the water. These containers have live bait fish in them for the local fishermen and charter boats to use for thier operations. These containers look like a platform to stand on, but apparently the sea lions feel they are perfect for sunning themselves as well.
Now there seems to be no lack of sea lions in the San Diego area, and they have certainly found themselves a place that is out of the way. But they also seemed to be pretty comfortable with the boats coming up close to the containers. We had one particular sea lion who was posing constantly and never stopped while we were in the area.
Take some time out of your busy schedule and take a ride on the SEALs while you are in San Diego. One word of caution for you though. Dress warm the breeze out on the water is pretty chilly even on the warmest days.
