If You Can't See the Pictures

Point Cabrillo is a preeminent location from which to watch the annual migration of the gray whales from the lagoons of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico to their summer feeding grounds in the Arctic Ocean.

March 4th, 5th, 18th and 19th  from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., volunteer docents will help with whale watching, highlight Light Station history, and relate the story of the clipper brig Frolic, wrecked off the cove in July 1850 in walks to nearby Frolic Cove.

During Whale Festival, a $5.00 parking donation goes toward our education fund, which supports school field trips to the Light Station.
