Yesterday we saw a grey whale whilst having lunch. All we could see was the spout and the back but it was still cool. Grey whales are forty five feet long and also forty five tonnes heavy. They feed up in Alaska until they swim all the way down to Baja (a country at the bottom of California to breed.
We see harbour seals sitting on rocks almost every day and they always look really cute. The seals live here all year. They weigh from 125-200 kilos.
Californian sea lion
These sea lions spend most of their time in California to breed but come up to Oregon for summer and autumn
Stellar sea lion
These sea lions also live here all year and were at the same rock as the Californian sea lion. The males are 3 or 4 times bigger than the females. Males weigh about a ton and females weigh 300 kilos.
Northern Elephant Seal
Northern elephant seals are the largest seals and can dive the deepest of all mammals, even deeper than dolphins and whales. Males weigh up to 2 1/2 tonnes. The ranger showed me one but I thought it looked like a big fat log.
