Have you ever seen a sea otter? These cute-n-furry members of the weasel or mustelid family can be spotted floating, hunting, cleaning, sleeping and eating throughout the waters of Pismo Beach this time of year. Often all of these exertions are done with pups in tow as the pups are dependent on their mothers for five to twelve months.
If you haven’t done so yet, it’s time to plan your visit to Pismo Beach to see these adorable creatures.
