what time is low tide and how far of a walk is it from the parking lot to the tide pools?
The time of high tide or low tide varies seasonally- I would check the local news outlets, or search online. There are also surfing stores along highway 1, or in the harbor area. The shops can also direct you to the tide pool areas and let you know where you can walk extended lengths of beach.
