California Channel Islands Diving with Seal Lions and Harbor Seals

This was a great trip to the Northern California Channel Islands. On the final day we encountered a cove full of sea lions and harbor seals. They are the highlight of the video.

The boat is Vision, part of Truth Aquatics fleet. We dove both Santa Rosa Island and Santa Cruz Island on a 3 day trip. Weather was pleasant and warm, water was in the low 50s as expected. This dive trip took place in March 2017.

Most of the diving was in heavy surge at depths above 60 feet. Visibility varied by dive site, and averaged about 30 feet.

All video was captured with a GoPro Hero 4 Black set at 1440 and 60 fps. Ikelite tray, Ultra Lite arms, and dual Sola 2000 video lights. Much of the video was taken with natural light, particularly the sea lions and harbor seals.
