The Sea Lion Cave is the largest sea cave of its kind in the world, stretching the length of a football field with the height equaling that of a 12-story building. The cave was discovered by William Cox in 1880, but was formed 25 million years ago. 2012 marked the 80th year that the cave has been open to the public.
