Harbor seals resting, not pupping. They give birth on protected beaches or in the shallow waters near the tideline of same, not on nearshore rocks that are underwater with the next high tide.

Yes, these harbor seals are not pupping, and they do not have pups with them. During the pupping season they often do haul out on these rocks at low tide with their pups.

Thank you for your comments. Looking closer at this photo, I cannot see any identifiable young (so I changed the title), but in the several photos I shot here there were young. This was taken in early May and the area here includes a sandy beach, as well as the rocks. These harbor seals breed from March to May depending on the population and young seals were there on this beach, but perhaps not in this shot.
