Explore Where the Sea Meets the Land
Visit a local tide pool to learn how these amazing habitats and their inhabitants truly survive between a rock and a hard place.
The optimal season for tidepooling is December - March when minus tides reveal wider beaches and tide pools teeming with life. During those months, you can sign up for a Tidepooling Adventure where our trained naturalists will show you how to tread lightly during your visit and help you discover the wonderful world of tide pools.
For ages 2+ (tickets required). Under 15 must be accompanied by a paid adult. Guests should expect to walk and stand for 1 hour, walk and balance on slippery rocks, and have the ability to bend and/or squat to look into rock pools.
Tidepooling Adventures do not meet at Birch Aquarium.
