Journey to view a large colony of northern elephant seals, guided by your docent naturalist on this moderate 3-mile, 2.5-hour adventure. In the month of December, male elephant seals arrive along the shore of Año Nuevo State Park to establish hierarchy, while pregnant females come ashore to birth their pups. These popular guided walks take place rain or shine, so be prepared for windy, rainy conditions as well as muddy trails. Layered clothing, sturdy shoes, and rain gear are strongly advised. No umbrellas, strollers, or pets. People with accessibility needs may reserve an equal access tour along our boardwalk Fridays through Mondays and select holidays. Tickets are $7 per person plus a $3.99 reservation fee. Vehicle day-use fee is $10.
