Have You Ever Heard Of Seal Beach?!

"WAIT. You're telling me there is a beach where I can just hang out with seals?!" - You.

No, I am not talking about Seal Beach, in Orange County, CA. This isn't the O.C. I'm talking about Seal Beach, better known as La Jolla Cove, located in San Diego, CA. So if you're already on that cost, or have an unlimited income, WHY AREN'T YOU THERE RIGHT NOW?! Not only can you hang out with seals (as if you need any other reason to go) it's an absolutely breathtaking place that is considered "San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling." The water there is calm enough, that depending on the season you can swim near the seals!!!! Here is evidence of it's perfection:

First of all, it looks like this:

Granted, most California beaches are beautiful and easy to boast about. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

You have a great aerial view of the seals!!!

On a good day, the beach is PACKED with seals of all shapes and sizes. The best are the seals who like to sleep on each other while chilling at the beach.

The seals are huge fans of laying on the rocks

Which not only makes for great pictures, but it also means they get much closer to the part of the beach you're allowed to go onto!

The seals sleep and swim RIGHT next to the beach!

While there is a part of the beach solely for the seals to lounge on that doesn't allow humans, there is a separate beach that we can hang out at. The seals think the water over there is pretty great.

You are close enough that "zoom" becomes OBSOLETE

You aren't supposed to approach the seals, but that sure doesn't stop these seals from approaching you!

Basically Seal Beach is just one big seal party

They talk, laugh, swim, and sleep = the world's coolest party.

The seals will come RIGHT UP TO YOU

And you will freak out harder than you would for your favorite celebrity because this cute, chubby little sea creature picked YOU to say hi to! You will also cry when they then decide to flop back into the ocean to meet up with their cool seal friends.

Still on the fence about going? Look at this face:

Seals are PRECIOUS! La Jolla is a friend to the seals and the environment is centered around persevering this natural wonder.

You're welcome. Have fun visiting the seals!

It's soooo much cooler than seeing them at the zoo.
