What you'll do

Let's go 9 miles north of Santa Cruz to Davenport. I will show you my favorite tide pooling spot where we will see starfish, anemones, urchins and large mussels. After tide pooling, we will continue our hike along the coast where we will climb up and down over small cliffs and shallow water towards an exposed cave to walk through during low tide.

Kristina

I'm a Santa Cruz local with over 20 years experience as a naturalist searching out the healthiest intertidal zones from Santa Cruz to Southern Baja. Combining my love for marine biology, California surf and sunshine led me to start Sanctuary Salt Walks. Guided coastal hikes to inspire and build a healthier, environmentally conscious community of beach lovers. My experience is free flowing, my routes are lesser known and primitive.

Where you'll be

We will meet in the parking area in Davenport and walk along the beach towards the sea water pump for the American Abalone Farm where we will cross the sometimes rushing water and rocks. When we reach our tide pooling area we will look for marine life and maybe sample some seaweed. After, we will enjoy a hike to our cave along the primitive coastline where we will explore the rocks and marine life we find inside.
