We could see seals on the rocks, basking in the sun.
Who is basking here, we or the seals?
Thank you so much.
Do you have a better way to get around this type of ambiguity?

- We could see seals basking in the sun on the rocks.
I see no ambiguity here, as basking is nearer to seals than to we.We could see seals on the rocks, basking in the sun.
Just avoid 'Basking in the sun, we could see seals on the rocks'.
