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, however for the month of September our walk schedule is slightly modified to accommodate our Docent Training Course. Walks are still open to the public, but if you’re seeking more information and involvement with the Nature Interpretive Center and the Dana Point Headlands Conservation Area, please see this flyer for more information on our Docent Training Course.

All walks begin at the Nature Interpretive Center (34558 Scenic Drive, Dana Point, CA 92629) at 9 AM. The walk is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours long, covering about 1 mile.

Please RSVP to DPNaturalResources@danapoint.org or (949) 248-3527

Trails are open 7AM to Sunset daily

Nature Interpretive Center hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10AM to 4PM

If you have any other questions, please let us know!
