The only place in the world where orcas grab sea lion pups from the beach is on Peninsula Valdes, Argentina. During the first week of April, 2013, I went there with hopes of watching this spectacle unfold. I flew from San Francisco to Houston and then on to Buenos Aires, where I met most of my 6 travel companions. Together we flew to Trelew and hooked up with Luis, our expedition leader. Luis accompanied us for the 2-hour drive to our hotel in the small village of Puerto Piramides. By the time we arrived, it was past midnight.
