  • This is a very beautiful and historical place to visit. Presentations give you an overview of the history of the palos verdes peninsula . The view is breathtaking and the artifacts are well presented. 
  • Every Sunset is different ! This is one place that makes my staying in the local area so worthwhile. To be able to drive a few miles to see the scenic beauty of this place is such a blessing! 
  • It's a lovely museum type of center. Very cute and informative on the history of the area. It is free with donations accepted. Perfect for all ages. Outside offers great views for whale watching!
  • Good place to view the ocean, maybe you will see whales in the right season. Good peaceful place to escape the rat race.
  • Beautiful location, lovely walks. Interpretive center itself is fine, with helpful staff, but main benefits of the place are the many benches and the well-maintained trail.
  • A great spot for landside whale watching. The Cetaecean Society makes it's official observations here. Bluff top trails offer spectacular views of Catalina, Malibu and flocks of pelicans gliding above the rocky beach.
  • One of the best spots on land to see whales of all types. Stop by and visit the Gray Whale Census. ACS/LA GRAY WHALE CENSUS AND BEHAVIOR PROJECT This shore-based whale census takes place on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and has been going on since 1979. Observers spot migrating Pacific Gray Whales on their annual migration both north and south from this vantage and record their observations of both their numbers and behavior. The project runs from December 1st through May 15th and is currently located at the Pt. Vicente Interpretive Center.
