"Best places to see seals/sea lions" Sea Lions Tip by squidly2

Sea Lions, Monterey: 7 reviews and 12 photos


Many times there are sea lions actaully piled on top of each other at the end of "The Coast Guard Pier". There is actually a fence built there, so it is safe to walk out.

Didn't see any there? Walk along the "Recreation Trail" north to Fisherman's wharf, and look out on the rocks. There's usually at least a couple out of the water snoozing.

Directions: To get there, use Mapquest for 100 Foam St -- it's in that vicinity. There is parking very close at San Carlos Beach (unless it's a weekend morning and the scuba divers have taken them all!!)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
