Sea lions are large and noisy creatures, but amazing to watch. A few miles north of Florence, Oregon, are the Sea Lion Caves, and definitely worth a visit.
The above statue is true to size. I was amazed at how they dwarf a grown man. What a treat to watch them and spend the day by the cool sea.
The species at the caves is the Stellar sea lion, one of the largest, and the cave is the largest in America. It’s part of a series of caverns open to the Pacific Ocean.
The sea lions can be viewed from an outlook. Even over 200 feet above, the sea lions can be heard (also the hella wind).
An elevator can be taken down to the largest cavern. It was a remarkable place to view wildlife in their natural habitat.
