The Sea Lion Cave Saga!

Hello there, So. Oregon Coast adventurers! I am really excited to talk about the Sea Lion Caves in Florence, Oregon. It is a bit of a ride from Gold Beach (approx. 114 miles) but well worth the trip. Not to mention the lovely sights that you can see along the way. The Sea Lion Caves are open all year round and makes a great one day excursion from Gold Beach. We had a blast and will definitely return one day soon. I am a dog lover and loved visiting with these "Sea pups".Picture 26

Here is a bit of the history and some great photos.

Sea Lion Caves is nature's home for wild sea lions and a variety of sea birds. Sea Lion Caves is located 11 miles North of Florence on the Oregon Coast.

The vast cavern with the roar of the great Steller sea lions, the cries of the wailing birds, and the restless surge of the ocean into the cave below, form an unforgettable experience. 

Formation of the cavern began about 25 million years ago. It now soars to the height of a 12- story building and stretches the length of a football field. Care is taken not to disturb the natural habitat of the wild animals that dwell here. Sea lions gather in this natural amphitheater, usually during fall and winter. In spring and summer, they breed and have their young on rock ledges just outside the cave. 

Here are some facts:

  • The largest Sea Cave in the World
  • Discovered in 1880 by William Cox
  • Height: equivalent to a 12 story building
  • Length of a football field
  • Elevator access since 1961
  • Formed 25 million years ago
  • Cave is made of Basalt Rock

I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
