Blasting and Pups


  • Visibility:15 Miles
  • Wind: 20-30 NW
  • Sky: Sunny with cloudy periods
  • Water: Very rough, 1-2 meter swells


  • Very little boat traffic today


  • The youngest elephant seal pup is doing well, staying close to mom with a large male sleeping close by for most of the day.
  • Saw a harbor lone seal on the east side of the island sunning itself.


  • I’m back at Race Rocks for the rest of this month. Very happy to be here again (:
  • A lot of DND blasting today. Every blast sends hundreds of birds into a frightened, flying frenzy and startles the sea lions off the rocks.
