Cruising Alaska: May/June 2006

We came slowly around a rock jutting out from a small island, and came face-to-face with this female sea otter and her pup. The pup is hard to make out, but is covering the mother's belly, with his nose just to the right of hers. After a few seconds swimming away from us on her back, she grabbed the pup and pulled him underwater with her.
