The Dana Point Festival of Whale celebrates the incredible 5000-mile migration of the majestic California Gray Whale from Alaska to Mexico that begins in December and continues through March.  During this peak season, 40 – 50 whales pass by Dana Point each day, using the Dana Point Headland’s 200-foot cliffs near the harbor as a landmark to check their migration path.  Dana Point offers the BEST whale watching along the California Coast .

If you have never been to the Dana Point Festival of Whales, you should really make an effort to come, and enjoy  their 42nd anniversary this year!  The Festival goes one for two consecutive weekends in March: the 2nd and 3rd, and the 8th and 9th,starting with the Whale Parade and followed by with many activities and 'whale' related events, including food, movies, and runs.
