La Jolla Sea Lions

The area surrounding La Jolla Cove is a favorite hangout spot for sea lions!

Unlike Harbor Seals, Sea Lions:

  • Have small outer ear flaps
  • Have long flippers that allow them to walk on land
  • Spend a significant time with other sea lions out of the water
  • Communicate using loud barking sounds

It’s important to remember that sea lions are wild animals protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Enjoy while keeping a safe distance, especially around pups and protective mamas.
