Florence Things to Do: 45 reviews and 109 photos
The accessibility to the caves is done by entering the gift shop from the street level. You will need to buy a ticket to get to the cliff face and elevator. The tickets are as follows:
16+ - $8.00
6-15 - $4.50
-5 - Free
Once on the grounds you can walk to the overlooking shed and see the landscape around the area or go along the other path to the elevator and descend into the cave. Each path is less than 400 feet.
The elevator drops 208 feet to the cave level where you will be greeted with loud noise from the Sea Lions barking and the water crashing as well as the pungent smell of Sea Lion (not pleasant). Inside the Cave visitors are encouraged to not use their cameras flash as it may scare or irritate the animals.
The Cave is the largest in the world with a floor area of about 2 acres and a ceiling that is about 125 feet above the sea level.
Directions: The Sea Lion Caves are only 11 miles north of Florence along hwy 101. There are signs denoting the turnoff from both directions.
