352. Point Lobos: Tidepools of the South Shore

The tide pools at Point Lobos are found along the south shore where the fascinating shapes of the sedimentary rocks and the conglomerate known as the Carmelo Formation allow access to the ocean shore.  All the marine life, including the rocks are to be left in place where you find them.  Nothing in this marine protected area should be removed, or collected.  

Check with the information station for the high and low tide levels for the day.

Do not venture into the tide pools if the waves are rough, and always keep a close watch on the tides as you discover the critters that live in the inter-tidal zones.
