Elephant seals at the Elephant Seal Vista Point

Wildlife Photography

Elephant Seal Vista Point, located at the San Simeon natural park, is a great spot to see and photograph Elephant seals. The place is easily accessible, free, and open to the public year-round. However, the best time to visit is between November and January, when seals mate, birth, and rest.
