We have been here in several different seasons and it is always terrific! Viewing site is right off the parking lot with hundreds of seals entertaining the public. Very knowledgeable docents make it very interesting.

A little stinky this morning but always something to see here. All during the year different groups of elephant seals converge here. They have docents to tell you more if you engage them. Great spot to see these awesome animals.
