91560 Hwy. 101 N., Florence, OR 97439, United States

The largest natural sea lions cave in the world, this location is home to an average herd size of 200 wild Stellar sea lions and also attracts sea birds like gulls and cormorants, along with the occasional California sea lions plus gray and killer whales. Discovered in 1880, the cave was formed 25 million years ago. Visitors can also see skeletal remains of sea lions and a large bronze statue of a sea lion family. Open daily, park services offer guided walking tours (expect 10 to 20 percent inclines). In spring and summer, seas lions can often be seen outside the cave on the surrounding rocks.
