As we walked down to Admirals Arch on the well built boardwalks and steps we were also able to stop and watch the many seals on the rocks and cliff terraces, seeing many sleeping but some also frolicking in the shallow pools created by the...More

A very spectacular and fascinating place to visit. From watching the seals frolicking, swimming, sunning themselves and sleeping, to marvelling at the rock formations and the action of the waves, this place is amazing. I just wish it was advertised more that it isn’t entirely...More

Admirals Arch was at the end of a short boardwalk. There's a car park near. There are seals everywhere. It's well worth the trip to see it.

This natural arch shows very little of erosion by the ocean powers: it is very spiky on the arch as if it is growing stalagmites in a grotto. Very pointy. The walk to the Admiral’s Arch from the lighthouse makes it very much worth the...More

A must see, photos just don't do it justice, nature at its best. The hardest part is avoiding the tour groups

Beautiful place in the National Park. Short walk able to be done by all ages as the path is on a created boardwalk. We saw plenty of sea lions also in the same spot. A must place to visit.
