The Oak Bay Marina is home to several "wild" harbour seals. The marina's gift shop sells small bags of frozen herring for $1.95, allowing anyone with a toonie to feed the seals. Toss the herring into the water and watch the seals dive for it, or throw it high into the air and watch the seals catch it in their mouth. Whatever you do, DON'T try to feed the seals right out of your hands: they have very sharp teeth!
