  • The place is a bit outdated but may be that is why you need to visit it. There are a lot of places to it local see food and watch the boats coming and going and unloading their harvest.  more »
  • A REAL WORKING SEAFOOD PORT it is a great stop and the seal lions are awesome. Make it a lunch stop on your travels down the coast and take the kids .. way cheaper than the sea lion caves and really fun to watch, hear, and smell the sea lions
  • The Bayfront is always a nice little place to walk and explore. It seems to always be a busy place. Watching the Sea Lions never gets old. The water is always a peaceful place to be!
