365 Things To Do In Palos Verdes – Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s Summer Whale Watch

The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium will be having its Summer Whale Watch: In Search of the Giant Whales this Sunday, August 28, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. off the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  You will be searching for fin, humpback and minke whales, along with the blue whales that visit the coast during the summer.  The summer is the time that you can find some of the largest whales in the world feeding along our nutrient-rich coastline.  Experts will be joining you on this adventure.

The largest of these great whales is the endangered blue whale.  Researchers believe that there are only about 10,000 of these whales left in the world’s oceans and 2,000 blue whales have been seen off the California coast probably feeding on the krill that live on our coastline.  A regular stop for these whales is between Los Angeles and Catalina.  The whales migrate to breeding grounds off Costa Rica during the winter, so Palos Verdes homes owners have a coastline which is offering some of the best food stops for these mammals.

The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium trip will include boarding the 90 foot yacht, Spirit, in San Pedro and heading out to sea in search of whales and other marine life.  Reservations are required.  To make reservations call (310) 548-7562.  The price is $25 for members, and $30 for non-members.  The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located at 3720 Stephen White Drive, San Pedro.
