Whale Watching at Point Vicente Interpretive Center

You can take a girl out of the Midwest, but she will never get tired of gazing on the wonders of the ocean!

Not too far from where I’m staying there’s a prime whale watching spot. Something no one has said within the state of Missouri. Ever.

I’ve been magnetically drawn there. During the migration seasons, volunteer whale watchers sit each day with powerful binoculars to spot and record incoming, then passing whales along the coast at Point Vicente in Palos Verdes, Calif.

And now, I’ve seen whales. With my own eyes and without the use of binoculars. They come that close.

I’ve also seen them through a 75-300mm lens and put together a few clips of one whale splashing down the coast. You can see the whale watching tote board that’s constantly updated, some of the many whale watchers, some boats and fishermen and birds and three dolphins.
