Thanks for the comments Ippa and Peragrin; Their hangout is one of my favorite spots to visit. The little ones (1 yr old) are the greatest treat to see.

Thanks Laurel, I can't wait to get out there again to see how all the Lions are doing. They should be arriving soon for their winter stay.

Such a wonderful scene! I've never seen a family group like this. Panoramio no longer shows the date the photo was taken, is this recent?

Derek Holzapfel on October 28, 2010

Hi Nawitka; this was actually taken a couple of years ago. The male Steller Sea Lions winter on the Belle Chain Islets which are about 30 min. away in my small inflatable. They come around this time of year and stay until around April - almost 200 of them. It is a big bachelor party. Hope to get out there soon to welcome them back. regards Derek
