Playful baby Sea Lion in Galapagos

Playful baby Sea Lion in Galapagos

Santa Fe Island (Snorkel), 22/MAY/2016 – After a long and hot walk in rocky Santa Fe Island, it was time for us to go for a swim. The water was crystal clear and we were able to see the bottom from the panga. This was a good sign for the snorkelers. Even though the sun was up and shiny, the water was very cold and you could hear a couple of screams as people jumped into the water. Even still, a couple of minutes would be enough to warm up. Underwater there was plenty to see: king angelfish, surgeons, a whitetip reef shark and tons of other small colorful fish. When time was almost over, and some people even were already in the panga, a baby sea lion came close to the ones left in the water and started playing and touching us with his nose. He was a playful baby. So we started playing back trying to imitate each other (not very successfully). When the guide was telling us to go back and we were next to the panga getting our fins off, the baby sea lion was going in between, trying to tell us: please keep on playing with me! He even tried to get someone’s fin off his hand when he was trying to go up the ladder. He was a funny pup and made a good snorkel experience, simply awesome, fun and unforgettable!
