If you can make one of the tours, this is an interesting place to visit. Like the Turtle Hospital in FL, this institution is carrying out very useful recovery work for sea life. It is worth supporting through your visit.

It is definitely a car ride. From the Bay, across 101, through a tunnel, and then come out on the Pacific Ocean.

I would allow a couple of hours for the tour - you can always head down to the nearby beach if they get bored!
