The Al Sybrian statue of a Sea Lion that graces the edge of the Bay in Sausalito is an enduring symbol of the city. Originally cast in concrete and mounted in 1958, the current bronze statue was cast in 1966 when the original suffered damage from storms and tidal action. The Sausalito Foundation paid for the 1966 casting, and for a 2004 repair after wave damage that unseated the statue in a violent storm.
Where to see it: Many people drive by the statue without realizing it's there. It's located on a rocky outcropping just offshore at high tide (as shown above) and exposed on the rocks at low tide. Go to the spot on the Bridgeway Promenade (see map below) where the road bends just south of Horizons Restaurant. Aa small stairway leads from the sidewalk down to the lower pathway by the rocks beside the statue. A commemorative plaque is located at the top of the stairs.
