The number of animals varies as this is a rescue center and depends on who needs rescuing! We saw two seals and a sea lion that we were not supposed to wave to or talk to because they will be returned to the sea when they recover, as wild animals. We saw the seals through chain link fence. Lousy pictures. We saw the sea lion from above, without a fence, and we saw a baby seal that can be played with (by the keepers) but cannot be returned to the wild so will go to a zoo eventually. What blew our minds was the docent; a retired lady pediatrician who taught us and amazed us with knowledge of the sea, the animals, and the rescue service. If you like lectures with friendliness and interaction, go see this "non"- attraction. it was 30-45 minutes depending on all our questions.
