Celebrate Sea Otter Awareness Week this September in Morro Bay – Cuteness is Everywhere!

Morro Bay, CA, August 25, 2016 – There’s a lot of pure unadulterated cuteness going on in Morro Bay and they are called Sea Otters! What better time to catch a glimpse of these sea creatures in their natural habitat than this September in the quaint town of Morro Bay as they celebrate the 14th Annual National Sea Otter Awareness Week, September 18-24, 2016. Otters are everywhere and easy to find and close enough for a good look, just plop down a beach chair along the Morro Bay Harbor Walk that runs along Coleman Drive and start watching. This location is also a great viewing place from your vehicle as well. If there isn’t a family of them hanging out already, they will soon appear. Target Rock area located on the southeast side of Morro Rock is probably the best landmark to work from according to Eric Endersby, the Morro Bay Harbor Director. Mother’s or Coleman beach is another great location at the intersection of Embarcadero and Coleman Drive.
