Sea Lion Caves

Sea Lion Caves is a privately owned wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary. We are America's largest sea cave and the year-round home of the Steller sea lion. We are not a zoo so the protected marine animals come and go as the please. There are times when the sea lions leave us entirely, usually the late fall. SLC plays an important part in Oregon's Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve helping to protect the marine animals and their environment. Please call ahead for information about the status of sea lions and other marine animals in or near the Cave. SLC is centrally located on the Oregon coast just 11 miles north of Florence.
