Discover the beauty of low tide at Swami’s Beach in Encinitas. Meet our Volunteer Ambassadors and learn about sustainable ways to interact with sea life. Kids can enjoy the scavenger hunt activity to look for Sea Anemone, Bat Star, Crab, Wavy Top Turban Snail, and Black Mussel. This event is not guided; ambassadors are available to share inspirations and tide-pool life.
