Lowest Tide of the Winter Expected Sunday, Time for Tidepools!
Marla Jo Fisher at the Orange County Register says "that Sunday is supposed to be the lowest tide of the winter," meaning access for tide pool exploration should be at its prime.
Fisher herself notes two events at the beautiful Crystal Cove State Park. On Saturday is the Public Tidepool Research Walk where you "learn how researchers count hermit crabs, limpets and seastars in the Marine Protected Area." On Sunday there's a guided tidepool walk at 2 p.m. when the tide will be at -1.1. Both events are free, but parking at this state park is $15.
We've yet to see it for ourselves, but we hear the tidepools between Middle and West Anacapa Island are amazing. Do you have a favorite tidepool area?
