If you’re looking for a tour that shows you the best kept secret in Los Angeles for exploring nature, you've found it, look no further. During this tour, I'll lead guests to two to three different sea caves and if the tides are low, some cool tide pools full of sea urchins and sea anemones. If we’re lucky there’s also the possibility of spotting resident seals and migrating whales. Guests will be guided through a moderate hike of no more than 4 miles involving steep, loose dirt trails and rocky beach terrain. With dramatic bluff top views of blue/green water and kelp forests down below, guests will have numerous opportunities for fantastic photo ops and an adventure to remember.
Saturdays or Sundays: early morning, mid-day, or afternoon
I've been an outdoors enthusiast since I was kid and believe in safety first. I always carry a first aid kit no matter what kind of exploring I'm doing. The Palos Verdes sea caves are my favorite spot to explore in Southern California. I've lost track of the number of times I've visited and know the ins and outs of the place like the back of my hand.

Abalone Cove Shoreline Park - Parking Lot (additional fee)
  • Day 1
    We will meet in the parking lot of Abalone Cove Shoreline Park where I'll then lead guests to a trail past the park that will bring us down to the first sea cave and tide pool area. From there we'll walk along the water's edge to the other side of the cove to see the second sea cave and have a snack break. Once everyone is refueled, we can either head back up and over the bluff to see the last sea cave or head back to the parking area to conclude the tour. We’ll have plenty of time to explore each sea cave and for other photo opportunities.
