  • A REAL WORKING SEAFOOD PORT it is a great stop and the seal lions are awesome. Make it a lunch stop on your travels down the coast and take the kids .. way cheaper than the sea lion caves and really fun to watch, hear, and smell the sea lions
  • The Bayfront is always a nice little place to walk and explore. It seems to always be a busy place. Watching the Sea Lions never gets old. The water is always a peaceful place to be!
  • This place can be overcrowded when busy. It is fun to visit, with a lot of shop variety, but it can be difficult parking wise. Since it has several working seafood processors it can be a challenge for those that are sensitive to smells. If you are patient and relaxed you can have a great time.
  • Lots of cool shops. The sea lions in the docks below were a highlight. Go to Mo's for the best clam chowder I've ever had!
  • Very fun. A lot of places are open 24/7. Everywhere we went it was good food. We will come back again.
