Event date

In addition to our private day tours, we also offer a Very Small Group Guided Olympic Coast Tidepooling Tour Package.

We've planned all the details, so please join us. Email us today at and we will send you an expression of interest form.
Each tour will have no more than five participants who will be prioritized by the date an expression of interest form is received. 

Tidepooling can be described as the act of finding and learning about intertidal organisms left behind during a low tide and includes sea stars, anemones, coraline algae, hermit crabs, tidepool sculpins, chitons, and nudibranchs. Besides pools of water in rock or sand, the sides of large boulders are often a refugia worth investigating as well because vertical surfaces are often in safe zones from foot traffic and the Sun. The timing of our trip coincides with one of the last of the negative low tide series of our summer dry season. We will visit a local aquarium, enjoy wildlife large and small, and have two mornings for tidepool exploration.
