10 Photos of lazy sea lions (and me)

Sea Lions are part of your daily life when you live on the Galapagos Islands. They are everywhere and you cannot escape. And you don’t want to. Those creatures are so cute whether they are sleeping in the sun or playing with you while snorkeling.

San Cristobal Island  and Isabela are the best islands to see sea lions. In 2.5 months on the islands, I never got sick of observing them and took more sea lion photos than I am able to count. So here are ten photos of lazy sea lions (and me):

1. Those sea lions are laying on one of the most beautiful beaches on San Cristobal Island: on Cerro Brujo Beach

2. When you go to the Muelle (pier) there are always some sea lions hanging around. Those made themselves comfortable of the stairs.

Even rocks are comfortable for them

6. Those two sea lions walked all the way from the end of the old pier to this bridge. Then they just lay down to relax a bit. The short walk was too much effort to keep going.

      Yes they are. I miss my little friends 🙂 You shouldn’t play with them as a regulation from the national park says that you should always keep a distance to them. And if the Alpha sea lion is there, you really don’t want to come close 😉
