Soon after we entered the calmer water we sighted our first raft of sea otters in a kelp bed. The naturalist told us that the otters tether themselves to the kelp to prevent themselves from drifting while they sleep. She also made the observation that since this group was so large, it was probably a group of males. (This photo doesn't show the entire group) Apparently male and female sea otters live separate lives except during the breeding season.

At the end of our 2.5 hour tour the boat brought us to a dock in the Sitka harbor and we were directed to our bus driver who was waiting to transport us to our next stop, The Alaska Raptor Center.
