Ano Nuevo State Reserve is home to a large colony of Northern Elephant Seals. The seals come ashore to give birth and mate from mid December through March. The Reserve offers naturalist led guided walks between December 15 and March 31, which feature the seals in their natural habitat. These popular three-mile walks over rolling sand dunes last about 2 and a half hours and are considered moderately strenuous.
Please arrive at the Visitor Center at least 15 minutes before your walk time. Please bring your confirmation letter and a photo ID to pick up your tickets at the Ticket Window. Tickets are not transferable and can only be picked up on the date of arrival.
