One of those things that you should see if you're in the area...but don't worry if you miss it. It's a bunch of birds perched on a rock. Don't go out of your way, but if it's near, make sure you look at it.

This is a location you can only get to by water craft. It is well worth it though as the rock descends to the bottom of the ocean 25-30 feel below and has some of the most amazing fish and ocean life surrounding it. You...More

You need to take a water taxi to the Pelican Rock to have more time to enjoy the excitement. Sea Lions perch on the rocks, bring your camera.

Awesome place to snorkel and see the sea lions - worth doing a short day trip there! Snorkelling there was like swimming in an aquarium....wear a wet suit - water was cold! :)

We loved seeing the rocks (!) up close from our small zodiac. They literally soar out of the ocean and are huge! The seals were a big hit too!
