“one of the most beautiful natural wonders in cali!”
Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and its tidepools are part of a San Mateo County Park located in Moss Beach, CA, about 40 minutes south of San Francisco.The Fitzgerald Marine Reserve tidepools are one of the most beautiful and easily accessible natural wonders of the Northern California coast.Recently designated a Marine Protected Area, the rocky shore of the reserve becomes an outdoor classroom at low tide, allowing explorers of all ages to marvel at the diversity of marine life and learn more about protecting the ocean and its inhabitants. On any given day visitors may see sea urchins, sea stars, harbor seals, various mollusks, and even the elusive red octopus.
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.
