The beach below is part of the Hopkins State Marine Reserve and is a frequent haul-out for resident harbor seals (Phoca vitulina). Births take place during April and May. Newborn pups weigh about 20 lbs. and nurse for 15 to 40 days before they are weaned. Males start breeding at 5 years and weigh up to 200 lbs. Females breed at 3 to 4 years and weigh about 150 lbs. Harbor seals feed primarily at night on fishes, cephalopods, and crustaceans. Average dive time is 5 to 8 minutes, but can be as long as 35 minutes. They can dive as deep as 1,500 feet.
