Elephant Seal Play-fighting


  • Visibility: 15+ miles
  • Wind: 5-10 knots E
  • Sky: clear
  • Water: calm
  • Another spectacular sunrise!


  • About 8 elephant seals on Great Race today. Six or so on Middle Rock.
  • A few of the younger e-seals (2 or 3 year old males?) spent much of the day play-fighting. Very entertaining to watch.
  • We seem to be down from 8 nesting pairs of Canada Geese to 7.
  • Observed a Giant Green Anemone (Anthopleura xanthogrammica) in the water. Very beautiful.


  • Spent several hours dealing with various Canada Goose themed activities.
  • Cleaned the solar panels.
  • Checked the tidy tank. 11.5″ of fuel remaining, down from 13.5″ on March 30th.


  • A couple of pleasure craft came by today. One appeared to be anchored quite close to the sea lions on the North-West side of Great Race.
  • Only one eco-tour came by today.
