Seals- Avila!

This is the place to go if you want to see seals.

Along the pier, and even more and more on the lower decks of the pier. Look for stairs leading down, but beware, I was told they bite.

Seals are Great White Shark food. No one should swim toward or near the seals.

Of course they bite :-) They are wild animals. No one should approach them. Just watch from a safe distance.

You can also see sea lions, harbor seals, and sea otters in Morro Bay. And the elephant seals at Piedras Blancas.

I live near there and I love to see the seals hanging out. It's a lot of fun. I think they like it because the understructure of the pier is out of the water and safe from sharks.
