Explore Minus Tide at Cama Beach State Park

August 30, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

When the summer tides are below zero feet, underwater sea life is revealed and then covered by the rising tide a few hours later. Volunteers from Cama Beach Foundation, Sound Water Stewards and Cama Beach State Park team up to help find and identify what is there: sea stars, nudibranchs, sand dollars, and maybe a moon snail. FREE. Family-Friendly. Discover Pass required; purchase annual ($30) or one-day ($10) Discover Pass at the entrance to the park. See the species that are only revealed on the rare and spectacular lowest tides of the year.

On special low-tide dates (including July 2, 4, and 31), Cama Beach Foundation volunteers use a seine net to gently bring fish to the water’s edge, where small children use hand-held nets to capture and put the fishes into buckets which are then carried to an awaiting aquarium tank at the seawall for all to see up close. Plus a touch tank!

Dates and Times vary according to the tide. See

July Dates: July 2, 3, 4, 5, 15, 17, 30, 31
August Dates: 1, 2, 29, 30
