Depending on exactly where you are, the distance from San Diego to Dana Point is about 66 miles or a little over an hour-if you don't get stuck in traffic that is. The temperature stays around 70 degrees throughout the year and the beaches are popular spots for surfers and fisherman. During the summer, there are concession stands that sell drinks, beach and fishing supplies. The water is warm and not only do sea lions live there, but the harbor is also visited by whales, dolphins and harbor seals!
