Quick tide pool question before we go.....

We will be in Yachats for two days starting July 5 and would like to see a tide pool. This forum has suggested that Cape Perpetua and Yaquina Head Lighthouse are the best given our location. It looks like low tide will be around 7:30 a.m. Can anyone give us advice on which would be the best tide pool to visit given the time of year. Also which has best accessibility. Of course, any other suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks!

Yaquina Head has manmade tide pools that are ADA accessible. That being said, I think Cape Perpetua has the best tide pools of all along the north and central coast.

Seal Rock also pretty good. But Yaquina Head also good on really low tides. Not on the man made ones, Those just south of lighthouse.

And I have never been to Cape Perpetua tidepools. Not even sure where they are.
