HERE'S HOW TO JOIN

Each Explore Lincoln City Beachcombing Explorience begins with a brief orientation by local expert Laura Joki at the 33rd Street beach access just north of the Sandcastle Beachfront Motel. To get there, from Highway 101 turn west onto 35th Street (at the Christmas Cottage), continue down the street and take a right at SW Anchor Avenue. The beach access will be on the left hand side. Public parking lots are located at 35th and 32nd Street. Parking is also available along SW Anchor and at the beach access.

Following the orientation, Laura will guide participants along the beach and help them identify coastal treasures. Some of the treasures you may encounter include agates, fossils, gemstones, shells, petrified wood, jasper, rocks and minerals. Each Exploriance lasts 2 hours. Questions and feedback are encouraged from all participants.

Exploriances are complimentary and pre-registration is not required.

WHAT TO BRING:

Winter on the Oregon Coast can be wet and chilly. Please plan to bring the following to each Exploriance:

  • A warm, rain-resistant jacket
  • Sturdy outdoor shoes (leave the rubber boots at home unless the have conforming neoprene calves, the open tops are dangerous)
  • Gloves
  • A sturdy bag or container for collecting

BEACH SAFETY

Weather and ocean conditions can be unpredictable on the Oregon Coast. Please practice caution during the beachcombing exploriance. This includes always facing the ocean, being wary of beach logs and debris, and keeping small children and animals near you at all times.

PRIVATE BEACHCOMBING EXPLORIANCE

Our Lincoln City sponsored Exploriance will NOT be available in the 2021 season, so we have made this adventure available for private parties. For the 2 hour experience, we charge $25 per person with a minimum charge for 5 people per group, so 1 person or 5 people is $125. We can only schdule one tour per day when the tides are good for a safe outing.

We like to schedule these outings for best tide and weather, however, depending on the day, we can possibly accommodate short notice scheduling. 

Our guides at Rock Your World are fully licensed, bonded and insured. We are available for private tours all over the state of Oregon, provided it is the right season for the adventure.
