What you'll do
Anyone can enjoy the beach, but not everyone knows the plant and animal life living in this amazing ecosystem! After getting familiar with our group and going over beach safety and etiquette, we will walk along the beach and, in no particular order, 1) discuss and examine marine life (if any) washed up on the beach, 2) walk under Scripps Pier, home to a widely-known marine biology institute, 3) explore the rocky cliffside for marine life Also, a friendly reminder that we might not encounter any wildlife, especially as we will be on a beach. Like everything in nature, animals are unpredictable and not on a schedule! That's a chance we always take on these experiences. We will be in a Marine Protected Area, so all natural things (animals, shells, etc.) must be left as found on the beach. This trip is perfect for anyone, especially families with children, and can be customized to your liking. I can also host private groups. Just message me beforehand with your questions!
All hosts must follow guidelines created with World Animal Protection.
