It looks like a manatee to me too. At least the flat tail part. But if that's a manatee in San Diego, he's a long way from home.

We had one hanging on powerboat swimsteps and docks earlier this year that had what looked like a jaw injury, I think the juvenile white bass in the harbor were an easy food source for him. They must weigh a ton.

I've never seen an Elephant seal in San Diego either, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be one. I never saw a Harbor seal rookery in San Diego either, until the Save The Seals groups decided to protect the squatters at the Childrens Breakwater in La Jolla.
