Sea Lions are amongst the most curious and playful creatures around – they are like puppies that live in the ocean! Snorkeling amongst them in the Galapagos Islands is a real treat, for they have far more curiosity than fear of humans. They are particularly attracted to their own reflection (usually that happens to be your snorkeling mask), and this one would come close and swim away and then dart back, offering a new pose every time. It was about 5 relays before he decided to see what he looked like upside down. Having an underwater camera or waterproof housing just brings so much more to capturing the experience and memories! PHOTO TIP: Get a water-tight bag for your smartphone and use it for underwater shots.
