Unlike land lions, sea lions crawl on all fours with ease and bark rather than purr when you stroke their fore-flippers. Witness the flappy-eared pinnipeds in their natural habitat with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an adult ticket to a three-hour sea-lion tour (a $65 value) from Naknek Charters and Diving in the port of Friday Harbor. Naknek Charters and Diving, a diver-support center with year-round charters and tours, offers sea-lion tours from September to April, when the sea lions are most likely to be found in the nearby waters. On a three-hour tour of the San Juan Islands, sea-lion seekers may also spot bald eagles and other wildlife common to the area, including various sea birds and were-clams. Hot drinks and cookies are provided, and visitors are welcome to bring their own snacks to nosh on while observing the noble sea dogs hunting, playing, or lounging on barnacled divans.
Tickets for children ages 12 and younger cost $35, so today's Groupon only presents a deal if used for an adult ticket.
