The shots will be taken about 20 feet from where they are and we will looking down on them.

20 feet? ... it sounds way too close, my guess is that it should be more like 200 feet, no?

You can get within 30-40 feet of some seals at Piedras Blancas, but you're looking down on them from a 15-20 foot bluff.  The best shots are of seals that are closer to the water - humans are restricted to the top of the bluff.
