Harbor Seals at Encinal Beach in Alameda

From East Bay Regional Parks

How many harbor seals do you count in the image below? They are resting and warming up on this floating dock at Encinal Beach in Alameda. Many more seals will arrive as herring, one of their favorite foods, start spawning in the winter. Up to 80 harbor seals have been seen squeezed together on this very same dock! They can easily be seen with binoculars from the nearby Bay Trail.
To volunteer and report observations and numbers of seals contact:
