Cabrillo National Monument will be open until sunset on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in August. The tidepool area will be open until 30 minutes before sunset. Normal operating hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the tidepools closing at 4:30 p.m. These exclusive extended hours will provide increased access for visitors to enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean and San Diego during sunset.
Cabrillo National Monument is currently in a phased re-opening. All outdoor areas, trails, and restrooms are open. Indoor areas, including exhibits, the Visitor Center, and the Old Point Loma Lighthouse, are temporarily closed to comply with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state and local public health authorities.
Junior Ranger books and badges, maps, and visitor information are available at an outdoor station located next to the Visitor Center.
While outdoor areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased and services may be limited. When recreating, the public should follow local area health orders to keep six feet away from people who are not members of your household, to have a face-covering ready and wear it if you come within six feet of other people, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowded areas.
