Description: Let's catch one of the lowest tides of the year (-2.5) at Seal Rock north of Waldport. This beach has the best tide pools on the Oregon Coast with several areas to scramble and picnic. We will have two inter-tidal experts along to answer questions and point out unique tide pool life. Bring your lunch, rubber-boots, a walking stick for balance on slippery rocks, cameras, and binoculars if you have them. We will enjoy our lunch overlooking Elephant Rock and the coastal panorama.
Difficulty: Easy, minimal distance, Families are welcome on this outing.
Elevation Gain: 40 ft. down from the parking lot to the beach
Preparation: Bring plenty of water, lunch, rain jacket, an extra layer of clothing, sun hat, sunscreen, and water-resistant hiking boots. I really recommend a walking stick for the tide pool rocks.
Dog Policy: This is a no dog outing.
More Information: This will be about a two hour drive so we will all need to carpool. Please share expenses with your driver.
