Scheduled Beach Explorations
The lack of very low tides continues. However, we have selected the best tides for explorations of the various beaches we visit. Parking can be limited at many of our beaches, so please carpool when you can. Wear warm clothing in layers so you can stay as comfortable as possible. Extra socks in your Wellington-type boots can help keep your feet warmer.
2016 SPRING - SUMMER SCHEDULE
Saturday, February 27 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Fort Ward Park Beach. Our annual event with IslandWood and Exotic Aquatics Scuba and Kayaking. Great family event. Divers bring animals to shore where they are placed in wading pools for up-close and personal examination and gentle touching.
Saturday, May 7 11:00 am - 1:00 pm at Rockaway Park beach. Parking is very limited here, so please carpool if possible. Angle park to maximize the space. This is Bainbridge Island's best tidepool-type beach.
Sunday, June 5, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm at Point White Pier Beach. This -3.2 tide is our best one of the summer exploration season, so come and visit this great site which is best experienced at the lowest tides. Park at the small lot across the road from the pier.
Tuesday, July 5, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm at Fort Ward Park Beach. Enjoy a post-holiday celebration at this beach which hosts animals that can drill into hard clay to create their homes. Also a great beach for many varieties of algae or seaweed.
