swimming-galapagos-sea-lionsHave you ever snorkeled with a sea lion?

Young sea lions are especially interested in snorkelers and divers.

In this video, this young sea lion swims a few circles around me and then continues to swim somersaults and race around the other swimmers.

It seemed to be very interested in the camera – a small waterproof camera on a 3 ft extension pole. The sea lion kept coming back to look at the camera – dozens of times during the hour that we snorkeled with it.

I guess that the Floreana sea lions aren’t always lazy…
