Balboa Island Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Balboa Island
"I took my 7 year old granddaughter to see the sea lions for her birthday. It was a rather chilly day and it was nice that the boat had glass windows that were closed to offer some protection. The captain did point out the homes of the rich and famous as we made our way out to the open sea.We did see..." some sea lions on a buoy. I am not sure if it was the time of the year or the weather but we did not see any other sea lions except on the one buoy. It would have been a real plus if the captain would have shared some basic sea lion facts such how much sea lion eat, or how you can tell the bulls from the females. However, it my granddaughter got to experience a boat ride for a reasonable price.

"A friend and I took the 90-minute ride on a whim and weren't disappointed. We agreed that the portion that goes toward the open water was far more interesting; we preferred the sea lions, birds and pelicans to the rows of houses that make-up the other portion of the tour. The boat was pleasant as we..."re the guides. It is a nice excursion for any age.
