Why can reports on West Coast Sea Glass vary considerably between two different people?

  • Some are better at finding sea glass. For example, my wife, Lin, finds at least twice as much as me and more colors on any given day.
  • West Coast Sea Glass Beaches can vary from one tide to the next and also from low tide to high tide.
  • Some may not know the difference between Craft and Jewelry Grade Sea Glass.


For the above reasons, we try to verify these West Coast Sea Glass reports with actual photos whenever possible.

So take your camera to the beach! and be sure to report your West Coast Beaches finds!
