Sea Lions Launch onto Buoy to Relax

Occurred on July 5, 2019 / Ketchikan, Alaska, USA Info from Licensor: "My family of five, plus a friend, went out for a day of fishing for halibut from Ketchikan to Duke Island, south of Metlakatla, Alaska and slowed by the Hodden Reef buoy.

The one-ton sea lions jumped off and quickly realized we werenโ€™t a threat and wanted back in their resting place.

Iโ€™ve lived in southern southeast Alaska for over 30 years and always wondered how such big creatures could get up on the ocean buoys, theyโ€™re always there and when we came back by there were 7 on it.

So I pulled out my phone to see if I could capture them as they clearly wanted to get back to sunning.

Watching them shoot out of the water like rockets was amazing!

And my five-year-old was glad to watch it on repeat."
