 George Fraser Island was littered with Steller sea lions and California sea lions all mixed together.  California sea lions can be identified by their dark chocolate coat and a bulbous forehead. Steller sea lions have a lighter brown coat and are larger then California sea lions.

This is what happens when the herring spawn. Our sea’s, coastline and skies explode with life.  On today’s tour we had sightings of at least 15 Gray whales within a 3 mile area off Salomon Beach, hundreds of Surf Scoters, Humpback whales, Eagles, Sea lions and more.
