Los Islotes, Baja California
Sea Lion colony, doubles in size in summer, pupping early July, mating a couple of weeks later.
One of the best places to see Californian Sea Lions. Snorkeling and diving trips are possible too, most leaving from La Paz, Baja California. The colony has about 150 animals in winter and more than 300 in summer. Pupping in early July and the mating season starts a few weeks later. Males have spectacular display but the females and youngsters are more inquisitive towards divers or snorkelers.
