    This is really a surprisingly nice walk. Metered parking available just outside, but parking is pretty reasonable so just drive in if you don't feel like walking. Sea Lions swim right under the pier

    Make it out to the end of the wharf to watch sea lions through the open cut-outs. Also, about halfway down on the south side (facing the Boardwalk) there is a platform that the sea lions hang out on.

    In two spots far out on the southern side of the wharf there are stairs hidden out of the way that let you down to water level. Sea lions lay about there you can get inches away and face to face with
