Kissed by a California sealion in the Sea of Cortez

November 26, 2007 Written by

Location: Los Islotes, Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico

Comments: Divemaster Sten – affectionately known as the Vikingo – has kindly offered to write all of this week’s Captain Log reports. I will be back on the ship next week when we sail from Cabo San Lucas to Socorro/Revillagigedo/San Benedicto/Roca Partida Islands to search out and get close to our favourite giant manta rays. Sten reported that they started the trip off with a visit to Los Islotes and the resident population of California sealion pups. The scuba divers let the sealions chew on their fins, their wetsuits and one diver was even “kissed” on the mouth. Last dive of the day was on the wreck of the Fang Min – a Chinese fishing boat that was caught fishing illegally in Mexican waters, confiscated and then sunk as an artificial reef on November 17, 1999.
