    A favorite whale-watching site, the interpretive center is on cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. From mid December through March the whales' migration back to Alaskan waters is generally too far from the coast to be clearly viewed without binoculars. The Palos Verdes Loop Trail passes through the center's grounds, which also has tables for picnicking.

    This is a little museum near the Point Vicente lighthouse dedicated to whaling. There's some old whaling tools on display, as well as lots of memorabilia from the Marineland amusement park, which used to be located very close to where the museum is now. Right outside the museum, you’ll see lots of people with chairs and binoculars whale watching. They even keep a count of how many and what kinds of whales have been spotted today and throughout the last year. You can rent a pair of binoculars from the museum if you want to try some whale watching.
