Whale Watching Season in Dana Point

It’s that time of year when whales migrate from Alaska south to warmer waters in the lagoons of Mexico. Just walking distance from The Strand at Headlands, is its 33-acre Conservation Park, the historic point for which Dana Point was named, is the perfect perch to for California Gray Whales and Blue Whales on the move. The Conservation Park features decomposed granite trails and countless lookouts to view the whales. Even if you miss the migrating whales, The Conservation Park is gorgeous this time of year. With the recent rain, the park is in full bloom with full spectrum of native, indigenous flowers and plants. The Conservation Area contains over 150 species of plants and animals that are native to coastal Southern California. Several rare and indigenous plant communities are found on the site, including; southern coastal bluff scrub, native grasslands, maritime succulent scrub, mixed chaparral, and coastal sage scrub. Dana Point has one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world. Go to www.danapoint.org for more information.
