This is great entertainment for children and adults to view many native fish and sea life up close in their natural environment in the wild.

Take the time to go to Point Loma (right by the airport) and visit Cabrillo. You pay $20 per car to enter and it's well worth it. The tide pools are so cool to explore and the erosion makes it look like an alien planet.

It is just amazing to walk on the ocean floor. One thing a person must do, is check the tide schedule and go a low tide.

Cabrillo tide pools are fun to visit. We looked at a tide chart, and found out that on the day we were going to visit that the low tide was at 2:00pm. We had seen a very long line into the park a couple of years ago, so we decided to get there about 2 hours before the lowest tide. It was a great decision- as there was no line to enter the park and we could easily park near the tide pools! (I see that parking could be extremely difficult during low tide.) The pools were fun to walk around and explore. We could easily find hundreds of little hermit crabs and a few anemone. I was a bit disappointed that we only saw two starfish, and not much else. The volunteers were wonderful and knowledgeable! They were the ones that found the two star fish we did see - a beautiful Knobby Star and a very rare Soft Star. Definitely the highlight of the stop!
