Off Canada's west coast lies Hornby Island, in the Straits of Georgia. The island is a rest stop for migrating sea lions every October. For some reason, hundreds of these creatures congregate on a small reef, just off the island.
A short swim along a rocky bottom takes the divers to a level spot at a depth of between 40 and 60 feet to watch the show. Soon, like ghosts out of an emerald sky, the Sea Lions enter the stage to put on their acrobatic act of pirouetting and swooping around you, and sniffing at you like curious playful puppies, in wonder at these strange bubble-blowing creatures. The shallow depth allows for a good long dive, but all too soon, you must leave your newfound friends.
