This walk focuses on the offshore visitors that can be frequently seen from the Dana Point Headlands. It is designed to introduce participants to our whale “seasons” (ie, November to May equals Grays and Summer Blues)! Participants will learn about Gray Whales, who migrate past us in the winter and spring months, and Blue and Humpback Whales (in the summer months). In particular, this walk focuses on what types of marine mammals we see, how to identify them, where and when to look for them, and how to responsibly view marine wildlife.
The Whale Walk and Talk occurs on the second Saturday of each month. The walk begins at the Nature Interpretive Center (34558 Scenic Drive, Dana Point, CA 92629) at 9 AM and is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours long, covering about 1.5 miles.
