Just the other morning we had a playful young fur seal showing off around the boat while chasing little fish in the marina and putting on a fantastic show. He seemed to revel in all the attention and hung around in the sun once he had finished feeding.
There was also a spectacular flying fish later that day, slowly swimming near the boat, showing its beautiful colouring of blues and pinks when it caught the sun. We often see these guys while we are out with the dolphins. Flying fish are a favourite diet for common dolphins and they tend to make themselves scarce when the dolphins show up so its hard to get a good look. Flying fish have 'wings' which are actually large fins, theses allow them to 'fly' skimming the water to quickly avoid predators.
