As our boat docked to let off passengers who were going to day trip on the island, there were a couple of Pigeon Guillemots (Above) hanging around the bay.

California Sea Lions (Above) were very numerous sunning themsleves (Although the day began very gray and cloudy) on the rocky northern shoreline. Seals were less common, but we caught sight of a huge pair of seals (Below), although I am not sure what type of seal they are, they were the most interesting wildlife I saw on the cruise.

Overall I was hoping to see a greater variety of wildlife, but what we saw was interesting and worthwhile.
