Sea Lion Caves

Sea Lion Caves is a privately owned wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary (since 1932) centrally
located just 11 miles north of Florence on the beautiful and rugged Oregon Coast. Sea Lion Caves is
proud to be part of the Oregon/Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve helping to protect the local marine
animals and marine environment. Sea Lion Caves is America’s largest sea cave and the year-round
home of the Steller sea lion, but sea lions are not always in the Cave. They are wild animals and we
are not a zoo so these protected animals come and go as they please, as is their nature. Winter
months will usually find hundreds of sea lions in the Cave and when spring arrives, breeding and
birthing time, the sea lions will move from the Cave to the rookery areas (the rock ledges out in front
of the Cave) and will remain there through the summer.
