Join us for a driving tour to Año Nuevo where we will have a guided walking tour to see the elephant seals. This is peak mating season for the elephant seals, so there should be lots of seals and action. We will start at Cubby’s Dog Park in Pleasanton, take Niles Canyon Road to Fremont. Take the Dumbarton Bridge and follow Hwy 84 to the intersection of Hwy 35 (near Alice’s Restaurant) for a rest stop. From the intersection of Hwy 84 and Hwy 35 we will head south to Hwy 9 and take Felton Empire, Empire Grade, Pine Flat and Bonny Doon roads out to the coast. We will continue north on Hwy 1 to Año Nuevo. A picnic lunch at Año Nuevo State park will be followed by a guided walking tour to see the elephant seals. After the tour we will go north on Hwy 1 to Hwy 84 and head for Alice’s Restaurant for an optional dinner.

The trail to see the elephant seals includes a 3-4 mile hike and is considered moderately strenuous over rolling sand dunes with varied terrain. Walks take place rain or shine. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress according to the weather. Umbrellas are not allowed on the guided tours.

The registration fee includes water, a pre-ordered sandwich, and the guided walking tour. There is a separate park entrance fee of $10.00 per vehicle which is paid on your own at the park gate.

Eventbrite fees of approximately $2.85 will be deducted for cancellations made up to 7 days prior to the event. No refunds within 7 days of the event.
