I was checking the archives and found this one:

It turns out that same seal(probably)had actually attacked some of the other divers on that dive, even drawing blood from two of them. I figured I was lucky then, all I got was a bit fin.

- posted by HD last year (October)

I also had my experience with a seal in Malibu during the day. When I realized that something was pulling my fin, to my surprize, it was a seal about my size. He stayed around me for ten min. or so and pulled my fin one other time when I was occupying myself in hunting.

Reading the note above, I noticed that seals can be troublesome. -- drawing blood!!!???

Does anyone have or know of any similar experience and the proper way to handle the encounter?

Exploring the unknown world can be scary at times....
