  • The Interpretive Center is interesting and manageable. Think the opposite of the British Museum. Just a few thoughtful rooms with geological and ranch models, dioramas, amazing photos and short videos...  more »

  • Interesting and informative museum with a nice gift shop and a park outside. There was plenty of parking and places for kids to run and play. The light house is open for the public on Saturdays. Proba...  more »

  • The spacious park provides sweeping ocean views and mans a good museum. For those interested in whales, they have a lot of useful information. You can see the lighthouse, but it is in use and not for the public.
  • Nice relaxing place. Bring a hat and walking shoes. Enjoy.
  • Beautiful day. Lots of good info. Lighting and explanations could have been better.
  • Access to the grounds of the lighthouse is restricted to guided monthly tours. It's designated as federal property. Still, the area is excellent since you can park for free at the Interpretive center next door and enjoy walking along the fenced cliff's edge.
  • Awesome place to see grey whales migrating in winter. Clean restrooms, helpful staff, small museum. In season you will meet like minded, knowledgeable whale watchers. Free parking, wheel chair access.
