Visitor Tips and News About Undersea Gardens
There is a (free) dock right next door where sea lions like to lounge. You can get a good look at how murky the water is/isn't before deciding on attempting the Gardens.
Generally, if you want to see underwater life you can visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium (just across the big bridge to the south) for roughly the same price.[Arne, 07/15/2010]
