Wat je gaat doen

You will observe several generations of elephant seals close up and in their breeding colonies and see stunning vistas over the land and the Pacific Ocean. You will learn fascinating insider facts about elephant seals and how they adapt to life in the deep ocean. We will visit some observation points not commonly known to visitors and you have the opportunity to experience nature through the eyes of a naturalist. You will also be able to watch for gray whales passing by on their migration between Alaska and Baja from one of the most famous places on the West Coast. If we get lucky we will see great horned owls, or peregrine falcons nesting in the cliffs! To begin we will meet at Drakes Beach where we will observe the first group of seals as we wander along the wide sandy beach, backed by stunning, white sandstone cliffs. Next we will be caravanning to the stunning Chimney Rock trail with views of the main elephant seal colony. We will be able to observe several generations of seals: bulls fighting each other to establish dominance over the colony, yearlings and mothers nursing their pups. If we get lucky we will be able to see animals mating or giving birth. The recently reopened light house is another beautiful destination. We will watch for migrating whales here and we can walk down to the lighthouse to see the exhibits in the lower lighthouse chamber.

I am a California certified Naturalist and a certified Naturalist with the American Cetacean Society and I am a lover of all things in and of the ocean. I love sharing my excitement and wonder of this beautiful natural seashore with park visitors of all ages. I have been volunteering as a winter wildlife docent with the Point Reyes National Seashore for over a decade and having been a teacher all my life I especially love sharing my passion with families and youth of all ages. I offer a variety of nature adventures locally and abroad. You can check out my website at: http://www.exploreinnature.com

Waar je naartoe gaat

The Point Reyes National Seashore with Drakes Beach and the newly restored Point Reyes Lighthouse are a stunning backdrop to get an intimate view of elephant seals and gray whales. White sandy beaches, sandstone cliffs and 360degree views of ocean and land will take your breath away. You will also see some not so commonly known places! Let my passion and love of this land and of the animals that make this place a home, enrich your visit!
