  • This is one of my favorite places. It's a good place to just sit and enjoy the view and the cool breeze. It's a good place to watch whales when they are migrating up and down the coast. It's a good place to eat a relaxing picnic. It's a nice place to bring visitors. And the little museum is interesting. There is even a gift shop with books of local interest, a few vending machines, and restrooms. There is no play equipment for children; that's not what this place is about.
  • 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.
  • A hiden place that is good for relax, picnik, walk, run, do yoga or just enjoy a good family moment
  • 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.
