Celebrate the Pacific Gray Whales as they migrate south from their “summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chuchki Seas in Alaska to the winter breeding and calving grounds in Baja California.” Point Vincente is a prime whale watching spot, although the migration can be seen through the end of April from many spots along our coastline.
The free 2018 “Whale of a Day” event, hosted by The City of Palos Verdes and Los Serenos de Point Vicente, will be held on Saturday, April 14th, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. There will be exhibits, craft and food vendors, a raffle, and activities for children like crafts and face painting (But, unfortunately, no “Whale of a Cake” from Carvelle.)
The event will be held on the main grounds of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center at 31501 Palos Verdes Drive West. Free parking is available at the Rancho Palos Verdes City Hall, located at 30940 Hawthorne Blvd. with a free shuttle bus service to PVIC. The Lighthouse itself is currently undergoing renovation/repairs and may or may not be open on Whale of a Day. For questions or additional information, please contact the Recreation & Parks Department or call (310) 544-5260.
