Thread: Seals

  1. #1

    Seals

    How many other guys thinks seals are really cool cus there like water dogs? Has any one every had a bad experience with a seal or otter like being bitten? Sometimes if one swims up close to me i like to pet them and they are never aggresive to me. One of my friends was bitten in the leg by one and i never understood why. He said he didnt even see it and was just bitten in the leg. Why would a seal bit a person?

    Yeah I don't like seeing them either. I usually paddle up to them and punch them square in the face. Usually gets them out of the lineup.

    I saw them when I surfed cape cod a few times 2 summers ago... its a little eerie having them pop up next to you sometimes, I think at one point one was staring at me from like 20 feet away. They're curious for sure but seem harmless for the most part aside from the influx of white sharks on cape cod which feed on them. When surfing the cape its almost reassuring seeing a calm seal playing around you, rather then none at all which would alarm me into thinking they're not around for a reason. I figure they know whats going on below the surface more then surfers do. I remember seeing a couple whales blow their spouts or w/e offshore when I was looking for waves down the cape too that was pretty wild.

    I live in Lewes, DE and surf at the Naval Jetties regularly. I actually saw a seal here a few days ago when i was surfing by myself. He actually scared the crap out of me! I was sitting on my board waiting for a wave and he popped his head up about 20 feet away from me, looked at me for a second and then swam away. I was actually going to start a post to see if anyone else has seen them around Delmarva.

    I see them all the time, a salty old man on a little boat told me that when they bite they don't let go, they sort of latch onto you and play tug of war like a dog. Couldn't image that.
