The California Sea Otter is one of the many wildlife species that has made their home in San Simeon, and can be seen year-round. Despite their relatively small size, being the second smallest marine mammal, the sea otters can dive up to 330 feet to forage for food in the ocean. Large groups of otters can be seen at the Piedras Blancas Light Station on any given day as well along the entire coast of San Simeon.
