Rialto Beach Hike – Tide Pooling Tour

Meeting Location: Rialto Beach Trailhead
High Point: Insignificant
Elevation Gain: Insignificant

Join us for a day of exploring this unforgettable beach and learning about the numerous forms of life and the fascinating topography they call home. Over the course of the day, your group will be guided along the sandy Rialto Beach where you will have the opportunity to leisurely explore the coastline. At low tide, you will marvel at the endless tide pools full of sea stars, anemones, crabs and other creatures. Perhaps you will be lucky enough to spot migrating whales in the distant crashing waves, as well as sea otters or sea lions. A couple miles down the beach is Hole-in-the-Wall, a massive, natural arch that you can walk through, as the tide allows. Our hike offers the opportunity to extend the tour past Hole-in-the-Wall, should you desire to explore further. Be sure to pack an extra layer, and shoes that you do not mind getting wet, as the Pacific Ocean can be deceptively chilly.

Tide Pooling: Our Rialto Beach Tide Pooling hike is available every day listed, but tidal patterns may vary. The hike can be enjoyed at low or high tide but if your intention is to join us to see tide pools, we advise booking a day with low tide in the morning (between 8 am and 12 pm). Please use the link below to help plan your visit.

I did a private one-on-one hike with a guide to Half Dome. This was such an amazing experience! The guide was very knowledgeable regarding Yosemite, and I realized I wouldn't have completed it without the help of the guide. His expertise and calmness during the cables really enabled me to push through and complete this amazing hike!”

We were a group of 7 family members (ages 22-65 years old), for all of us was our first hiking/backpacking/camping experience. We all have such an amazing yet challenging experience, it was really worthy! Thank you so much to our guides Nicole and Jack for your cheers, your spirit, your cooking, your yoga time, your knowledge and for doing this family trip so great! We really enjoy it!!

I booked a guided hike for Clouds Rest as I was unsuccessful in my ballot for Half Dome. My friend was unable to make it so I decided to book a guided hike for myself. From beginning to end, Lasting Adventures was great. They replied to me quickly, and my guide was excellent! He offered me hiking poles in case I hadn't taken any and had plenty other essentials on hand.
