  • Great place to visit. Staff was very friendly and informative. The activities available for kids are great. We also went on a guided tide pool adventure that was awesome for kids and adults. I definitely recommend making a stop here for part of your trip especially if you have kids.
  • It was not open when I was here. But it sits next to such a beautiful area of the California Coast.
