Things to Know

The harbor seal colony near the Chevron Pier is protected by law and should not be disturbed in any way. This includes making loud noises, conspicuous gestures or approaching past the warning signs. Harbor seals, like all marine mammals, are federally protected.

Disturbing them in any way is a felony, punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and/or one year in jail per count. To further ensure the protection of this seal colony, the City of Carpinteria passed a law which closes the beach from 750 feet to either side of the colony. It is illegal to walk on the beach from December 1 through May 31. Dogs and seals make a bad mix. If you bring yours with you make sure it is on a leash when you are anywhere near the Seal Preserve.

Please be respectful of private property rights.
