Tide Pool Exploring


The rocky shorelines of Montaña de Oro make for plentiful tide pools. Go exploring and you'll find them full of life – crabs, starfish, shells and more. Look for pools along the Ocean Bluffs Trail and you're likely to see giant, fluorescent lime green sea anemones, turban snails, rock crabs and sea stars. This is a fun way for the whole family to explore, with something for everyone.
