By Sonoma County Parks (other events)

6 Dates Through Feb 26, 2022

It’s that time of year again! Grab binoculars and a warm coat to go out and observe the annual whale migration passing through ocean waters just off the Sonoma Coast. This 2-mile, round-trip hike begins at the Gualala Point visitor’s center and continues towards the bluffs where we will try to spot spouts, tails, and breeching whales as well as pelagic birds and other fascinating coastal creatures! Registration is required for this free event. For more information, contact Kristina Stanton at [email protected].

Please bring your own water and snacks. We recommend participants dress in layers and bring a hat, and sunscreen. Most programs will happen rain or shine, but will be cancelled during heavy rains, heavy smoke, or extreme temperatures. Kayaking programs are weather and wind dependent. Accommodations will be made for visitors with disabilities upon advance request. Parking $7 or free for Regional Parks members.
