This tour includes a Scenic Drive on CA-84 through the redwood forest, and a visit to Año Nuevo State Park, the breeding grounds for the largest marine mammals in California. After arriving at Año Nuevo, we will have a picnic lunch followed by a Docent lead guided tour to see the Elephant Seals. In early March most adult seals have returned to sea, leaving behind hundreds of weaned pups. Groups of pups play in the dunes and learn to swim in the tidepools before heading out to sea.

Check out these brochures for additional information.

The trail to see the elephant seals includes a 3-4 mile hike and is considered moderately strenuous over rolling sand dunes with varied terrain. Walks take place rain or shine. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress according to the weather. Umbrellas are not allowed on the guided tours.
