This is a great place to teach your children or grandchildren about wild Sea Otters. It is great to see these guys in their own habitat.

This vantage point was a great place to see Sea Otters at play and otherwise doing what sea otters do. We stayed for about 30 minutes just watching them cavort and dive for food. One ate an entire crab!
