Hornby Island is a small island off the coast of Vancouver, Canada, and it's home to a large population of Steller Sea Lions. "It's an unforgettable experience," says Your Shot photographer and scuba diver Jeffrey Honda. "It is not uncommon to be surrounded by thirty sea lions curious to engage with divers by playfully touching, chewing, and hugging on the divers that are present."
