Purdy Beach Low Tide Walk

Get to know the unique animals that inhabit the intertidal zone with biologists and volunteer naturalists! Our low tide beach walks are FREE* and suitable for all ages. Each beach walk will last approximately 60-90 minutes and includes a lesson on beach etiquette. No two beach walks are the same; we never know what amazing animals we will find!


Park in the lot across the street and cross at the cross walk (Use extreme caution and make sure cars in both directions are stopped and it is safe to cross) or park along the roadway, using caution for passing cars and getting down to the beach (it is easiest to walk along the side of the road and use the boat launch to get to the beach.)  Meet at the boat launch.  Look for Harbor WildWatch staff and volunteers wearing blue. If you arrive late, find us on the beach!

Please dress for the weather. Boots or footwear that can get wet is recommended. Flip Flops or other open toed footwear is not recommended for safety reasons.

* Donations are appreciated. Harbor WildWatch is a 501(c)3 organization.
