Neat reserve, though I wish we had gotten to visit during low tide. I hear the tide pools are great and full of wildlife!

Best stop of our trip down the coast! If you like seals, I highly recommend checking it out. They are everywhere and are fun to watch as they lounge and play around.

Lots of marine life at low tide, it was a lot of fun to jump around the rocks and see the crabs, fish, and snails.

Easy to spend a couple hours here just taking it all in but if you only have a few minutes I still recommend you stop by.
