Here the yelping of the sea lions/seals with the reef and very interesting geological sites. Sign says you can go down to the tidepools( which we didn’t do).

Gorgeous hikes and amazing views of the ocean! Bring a jacket! Chilly in June! Beach combing and exploring abounds! Great for a picnic!

You could spend hours here. The view alone in the different places are just amazing. If your lucky enough you may spot a whale there are plenty of places to sit on beach and to just take in the beauty.

Special views as the sea was boiling today due to the high wind conditions - actually surprised to see all the seals and sea lions hauled out on the beach and rocks in the rough water conditions

This was probably one of my favorite places to visit while I was out west. I hopped out of the truck and hiked all around to get some photos. Saw a handful of sea lions and elephant seals over on the island.

This a beautiful spot. You get to look out at the rocks offshore and observe the wildlife. Sea Lions, Elephant Seals and Harbor Seals. I've seen whales off shore and innumerable shore birds. A great place to go!

Everyone should have a place of calm to go to and this is mine. You can feel like you are a t the edge of the world with the seals treating you from the great below.

I'm sure you would be able to see tide pools. Have to check tide table. On some days Sunset Bay State Park has guided tide pool walks with a ranger. Check with the campground ahead of time. They usually have their tide pool... More
