Visitor permits to see the seals inside the Natural Preserve are issued from 8:30 to 3:30. Visitors will not be able to obtain a permit after 3:30 due to the length of time it takes to hike to the viewing areas.
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM SEALS
Elephant seals are dangerous wild animals and are protected by the park. Harassment and disturbance of elephant seals is prohibited by state and federal laws. Seals can sometimes appear dead due to their quiet nature of sleeping on beaches. However, the majority of the time they are very much alive. Never get within 25 feet of an elephant seal.
Due to the nearby Natural Preserve, pets are not allowed in the park and cannot be left inside parked vehicles in the parking lot.
NO BIKES ON TRAILS
Bikes are prohibited on all trails in the park.
Shells, rocks, wood, plants or animals. All features of this park are preserved and protected by law.
I too have transitioned into the natural world without the BIG chop. I didn’t want to lose my length for those moments when I want to straighten my hair or rock a messy bun. It’s rough because now you have to deal with shrinkage closer to the roots and loose strands surrounding, but it is doable. I’ve been natural now for 1 year…and I absolutely LOVE my hair!! My nautal highlights are very profound and it’s very flattering. Especially since I’ve noticed my hair gets lighter as I get older. I have natural auburn and blonde highlights mixed heavily into my sandy brown hair. It’s always been naturally lighter in the warmer months, but it’s now lighter all year. I take advantage of my natural highlights and incorporate it into my natural texture and rock mostly a rebellious look. Hair speaks and mine speaks Loud 🙂 Have fun!
