101 Surf Sports Stand Up Paddleboarding and Kayaking on San Francisco Bay

Otters at 101 Surf Sports

So the date was December 23rd and just as the sun was setting we heard some "chirping" out back only t0 find the same pair of otters lazily strolling up the canal. One of them, the male,  pulled a fast one and slipped ahead while it looks like the female is calling out to find him. We have seen them many times since and even watch them raise a few litters of pups. Uber cute. Enjoy.
