West Coast boaters know sea lions as the scroungers of the Pacific.
Poaching an angler’s catch or hitching a ride on a swim platform are commonplace.
Here’s a recent video from Cabo San Lucas of a sea lion making himself at home and patiently waiting for a free meal.
Another amusing video shows a sea lion in hot pursuit of a fishing boat returning to shore. All he needs is for a crewmember to open the transom door so he can plant himself on the deck of the moving boat.
