From December to April, grey whales can be seen from the coast at Point Lobos, while orcas can be seen all year round. The ocean at Point Lobos is also home to sea lions, elephant seals, sea otters and harbour seals.

On land, visitors should keep a lookout for weasels, deer, badgers, bobcats and rabbits. The park also provides a home for the trickier-to-spot mountain lions, grey foxes, raccoons, coyotes, skunks and opossums, which tend to come out at night. Bird life includes red-tailed hawks, American kestrels, Turkey vultures and hummingbirds.

Used by Japanese and Chinese fishermen in the 1850s, the cabin has been restored to look just as it did in the mid-19th Century.
