We watched the Sea Lion antics for the better part of an hour. Very interesting watching the males "arguing" and pushing each other around. There are Harbor Seals in the harbor as well.More

My wife and I enjoyed the Crescent City Harbor area. Great seafood at the restaurants on the dock. You can view the Sea Lions and Harbor Seals on a pleasant walk on the Harbor Trail. Definitely a must stop when passing through Crescent City.

My very first time ever seeing a live sea lion in the wild. It was so exciting! One was actually on the rocks just feet away. I kept my distance took so great shots and enjoyed the view.

Thank you for sharing your excitement! It is educational and entertaining seeing these marine mammals interact with each other, Even though we're lucky enough to see them many times throughout the year, it's still always fun getting to see them in action.
