The entire time we were eating lunch on Pier 39, we could hear these sea lions! It was incredible to see so many in one place!
We were told that one time one of the sea lions figured out how to get onto a boat. Several of his friends joined him and since sea lions can weigh up to 1500 pounds, they quickly sunk it! The city of Astoria decided to donate this pier to the sea lions, but now they're spreading out again. The fishermen certainly hope that they don't decide to try getting in boats again!
