Año Nuevo State Park
North America's largest native mammals -- elephant seals -- return to the California coast for breeding season every mid-December - April. Located 7 miles south of the hostel, Año Nuevo State Park is the world's largest mainland breeding ground for elephant seals. Naturalist-guided walks are available on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, from December 15 - March 31. These tours are extremely popular and tickets can be difficult to come by.
These tours are extremely popular and tickets can be difficult to come by. Through a partnership with the park, we're able to secure advance tour tickets for our guests. Tickets are $7 per person; ask to reserve them when you book your hostel stay.
