... where you can snorkel with them. That was something we weren't going to miss out on. (It's amazing what will get you out of bed at 6am to go and jump in freezing cold water.) It was most definitely worth it. The sea lion pups are just like little puppies. They came up to us to check us out, play and try and eat our flippers. We had one sea lion get a piggy-back on Claire, and another stole someone's snorkel and started swimming round with ...

They Petisos were really cute, the mum lays the eggs and then abandons them, and the dad has to incubate them and bring them up. The dad also steals eggs from other nests, so they can have 20 to raise. Must be mad! Worrying sign of the day was one telling us about the spider eating ...
