Highlights at Nearby State Parks

Año Nuevo State Park – Elephant Seals!
The Park offers naturalist-guided walks between December 15 and March 31, which feature the seals in their natural habitat. To view the seals during this period, you must be on a Guided Walk. These popular three-mile walks, over rolling sand dunes, last about two and a half hours and are considered moderately strenuous. They operate daily from early morning to mid-afternoon rain or shine. Reservations can be made starting October 20 up to 56 days in advance, and must be made at least one day in advance. ReserveAmerica handles all reservations either by phone (800) 444-4445 or online (anonuevo.reserveamerica.com). Any unreserved tickets, no-shows or other available spots are sold directly at the park daily on a first-come first-served basis, starting at 8:30am. If you are unable to get reservations ahead of time, your best bet is to arrive at the park at 8:30am and put yourself or your group on a waitlist. If you arrive anytime after 1pm without a reservation your chances of getting on a tour are pretty low. Tickets cost $7 per person over 3years, parking rates $10 per car. Año Nuevo is about 3 miles Sou of Costanoa on Highway 1.
