There are many places to go and find great beachcombing. What are we looking for? Shells, driftwood, interesting rocks, bones of giant sea mammals, antique artifacts and detritus from around the Pacific Ocean that washes up on shore. This is pure kids play and everybody loves it!

Birders will love walking the seashore of Bristol Bay.  There are many stories to be told in the myriad of animal tracks that follow the ocean edge, too.
