A harbor seal flew past the viewing window. The color of the glass distorted the color of the seal.

The viewing platform had curved glass on both walls so the seal could swim under the platform. Here the seal rolled slightly before vanishing underneath.

Two sea lions rested on a rocky platform above the swim area. Their presence above explained why they were not seen swimming past the windows below.
