The Sea Lion itself is a diabase dyke that has been left behind after the sedimentary rocks in which it crystallized eroded away. It juts out 15 metres into Lake Superior at Perry Bay just northwest of Silver Islet.

The wave action of Lake Superior has cut a small tunnel in the formation. Before the 1900’s, when the Sea Lion got its name, it better resembled a sea lion sitting and looking out into Perry Bay. Since then the lion’s head has fallen off but the name has remained.
