It is the season for the return of the sea lions. They may be aggressive to humans at certain times and have charged kayaks with adults and children on board.
Their primary focus has been vessels that have easy access or vessels that have no deterrents.
Call the Harbor Resources(949-644-3041) or Harbor Patrol (949-723-1002) if you observe any on board a vessel, with the location or mooring number.
All mooring and dock owners must check frequently to make sure their deterrent measures are in place, are effective and kept in order at all times (see deterrent measures).
- You can find the complete NOAA ruling here.
- You can find a complete list of the deterrents approved in 2008 here.
