After moving to Perth, my wife and I made our first short trip north on the weekend, in search of a few fish.

We kayaked out to an inshore island about 1km off the coast and were welcomed by a seal colony.

Had a tough paddle back into the 15knot north easterly blowing us south.

Check out the footage!


(tried to embed but not sure how? Anyone?)

Cheers

Beautiful footage Louis. :)

Is there any danger from them? .... I know the guys in the eastern southern states don't like them, at least because they steal their fish. I suppose if a GWS turned up, it'd probably prefer them for a meal, rather than you. ? :eek:

Great footage, I edited the link on your post so you can see how it was done.
That was before I saw Kens post.

Awesome experience.

I normally don't really worry about sharks but WA seems to have a bit of a rep and swimming around with a colony of seals that can escape much faster than you would even have me worried.....

Cheers Guys,

Danger.... sure, but there is always an element of danger in the ocean. The area I was diving with them was in a semi enclosed bay, so A shark would have had to come right into the shallows.

I felt a little more unnerved when I got in on the other side of the island to try and find a fish, and the seals followed me, Suddenly hovering in 6-8mtrs of water with not great visibility and feeling a lot less comfortable I moved on pretty quickly!
