Animal Sightings “We see everything you could imagine,” Captain Sowdon told us. “Deer swimming around, whales, sea lions, seals, even sea elephants with their little trunks. I’ve seen them twice.” We were starting to get our sea legs so we questioned the veracity of the captain’s claims about the sea elephants, but Chief

Mate Moser assisted. Moser said, “It’s a real critter. Elephant seals are very, very large.” “A year or two ago we saw a pod of white-sided dolphins, a couple hundred of them, and they’re incredible,” Captain Sowdon said. “Though they’re more common further north.”
