Join California State Parks and CSU Monterey Bay researchers as we dive into Point Lobos State Marine Reserve on the central coast of California. Follow us as we swim through a thriving kelp forest and descend into a deep submarine canyon. We’ll explore dynamic ecosystems and encounter unique animals as we learn how California’s marine protected areas work to support a healthy coast and ocean.

I Just Swam Through a Kelp Forest in my Living Room!

This innovative app is easy to use thanks to the simple and clear instructions provided when you first download the app. Once you place a map of Point Lobos on your floor, table, or any flat surface you are transported into a virtual experience that helps you learn about the importance of our Marine Protected Areas! This app would be great for teachers and students but is also fun and interactive for everyone to enjoy! I like how the places of interest on the map tell a story about how an over abundance of urchins can result in urchin barrens, depleting healthy kelp forests. So much to learn from this exciting app! Hooray for MPAs!

Next best thing to scuba diving!

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to scuba dive in the epic kelp forest found at Point Lobos on the central California coast, this is as close as you can get! App includes awesome, high-definition, 360' underwater photos that let you virtually dive deep without leaving the comfort of your couch. Great educational content about habitats and marine protected areas. Timelooper does it again!

Excellent virtual experience

Point Lobos is a beautiful, amazing place that very few people will ever get to experience due to its relatively remote location. This interactive tour brings a spectacular underwater kingdom straight to your living room, full of fun facts and sweet views. I would love to see this done with more California State Parks.
