Water Quality
According to Santa Cruz County Environmental Health Agents Capitola's beach water quality may be compromised (unsafe) by bird feces and non source point pollution for about 85% of the swimming season. Please think about water quality and Monterey Bay marine life before you feed the sea gulls and ducks.
