Wow. We had one jump into the water next to our site one time. Not sure how far up it was when it dove but the splash was loud! Wish we had seen that part. We did get to see it swim by and spent the rest of the day watching it in a nearby marsh.
Paddling down Pickerel we suprised a large otter who was way up on a small cliff foraging around. He must have panicked and just wanted to get back to water ASAP, so he dove off the 20 foot cliff and his entry point was about 10 feet from the canoe. A more graceful dive than the moose......like a torpedo....hardly a ripple. I gave him a 9.9
"What could happen?"
