Sea lion pup startles sailor on yacht with snoring, sneezing

May 13, 2015

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A surprising stowaway startled a man out on his boat in San Diego: A sea lion pup who decided to crash in a bunk, waking the owner with his snoring.

Michael Duffy, 48, said he was on his 41-foot Kettenburg boat "Elixir" at the San Diego Yacht Club when he awoke at 2:30 a.m. Sunday to sneezing and snoring.

He thought it might be a friend, crashing from a night out, but couldn't find anyone. Once it got light a few hours later, however, he heard it again.

That's when Duffy saw a 35-pound sea lion pup on another bunk, curled up like a dog on top of his board shorts.
