Dana Point Festival of Whales 2012. It is Gray Whale season and they are out in full force giving a fantastic show already!

dana_point_whales_festival_paradeThe Festival of Whales, one of Dana Point's most famous annual event, is a celebration of the annual migration of the magnificent California Gray Whale. The Festival is held in March, but whale watching excursions begin the end of December, and are offered through the first of April. This year,  we've already seen some. What a great way to start 2012. It is Gray Whale season and they are out in full force giving a fantastic show.

The Festival of Whales began 40 years ago as an annual seaside event in Dana Point. The community and the many visitors that the city receives each year, celebrate the migration of the California Gray Whale and other species with ocean-theme events and activities with an emphasis on education and environmental responsibility. A variety of activities are scheduled for both in and around the harbor area with the main event being, of course, whale watching. Though the gray whales migrate past Dana Point for several months, the Festival dates tend to be among the most popular for whale watching tours. This year is no exception with many whales already putting up a great show. Be sure to make your reservation several weeks in advance!

Orange County’s annual Dana Point Festival of Whales for 2012  features two weekends of fun in March, when around 40 – 50 grey whales pass by the town each day. The Festival begins with the Parade that gets involvement from the community including schools and local businesses, held on the first Saturday of the Festival, as whale-related floats and giant inflatables are proudly held aloft along the Pacific Coast Highway.

The Dana Point Festival of Whales will take place on the 3rd-4th March and the 10-11th March 2012.
