Visit the Low Tide Fest, learn about all the plants and animals you can see when very low tides occur, then visit some other prime tidepooling locations. Very low, or minus, tides occur at different times every year, but Port Townsend’s annual Low Tide Fest is scheduled on a mid-July weekend.
All-day activities include beach walks, exhibits, presentations, touch tanks, kids’ crafts and games, fish printing, seafood, sand creations, music, and more. During the lowest tide, beach naturalists are stationed at Port Townsend beaches to answer questions.
