  • Visibility: 15 Miles

  • Saw a few ecotours go by today
  • No visitors today


  • The mother elephant seal is getting noticeably thinner from feeding the pup for weeks and not having eaten anything for some time now. I suspect she will be leaving her pup soon to feed and to let the pup tone up a bit before she makes her way to the water for the first time to feed herself.
  • Bernard (adult male elephant seal) has been doing a great job of protecting his two pups and female from the three other males on the island.
