Cambria is a magical place that’s home to sea otters who spend most of their day basking in the sun and diving back in the cold water. Although the otters are not as abundant as the elephant seals, these creatures of the sea are just as delicate and precious.
Sea otters inhabit offshore environments, which is why a trip to Cambria means you’ll surely see one or two of these delightful critters frolicking in their natural habitat.
How to know they are near? Just listen for the familiar click-clack of rocks. Otters use rocks to dislodge prey and to open shells of their favorite food – sea urchin. Their exceptionally thick coat of fur is the densest in the animal kingdom. So while the water may require a wetsuit for humans, sea otters have easy and natural insulation from their fur.
Enjoy a glimpse of one of these playful creatures and you’ll be smiling the rest of the day.
