Angelica lucida is a species of angelica known by the common names seacoast angelica and sea-watch. It is also one of many species in the celery family which are casually called wild celery.

As its common names suggest, this plant is found most often along the coastline. Its distribution includes the east and west coasts of North America, and parts of East Asia. It is considered an endangered species in some of the Northeastern United States.

Angelica lucida is generally similar in appearance to other angelicas, with tall, dense umbels of yellowish-white flowers.
