A large pod of sea lions was spotted catching some rays and playing in the water at Port William Sound, Alaska, on June 6.
Anchorage resident Stacy Thorpe captured footage of the seal lions chilling out and having fun while she was on “staycation” in the coastal city of Valdez.
Thorpe told Storyful that the video was filmed while she and her husband were on a wildlife glacier cruise, which allowed them to “get up close and personal with some amazing glimpses of nature.”
“As we rounded the corner of some rocky outcroppings, we were treated to a couple [of] pods of Steller sea lions, sun bathing and playing in the water,” she said. Credit: Stacy Thorpe via Storyful
