mendocino whale festiva

Enjoy a fun whale watching experience at the annual Mendocino Whale Festival.

Every year the gray whale migrates from Alaska to the tropical coastal waters around Baja, Mexico. On their journey the gray whales swim right past the Mendocino coast. This gives tourists and locasl a spectacular opportunity to see these giants, diving, spouting and breaching as they make their lumbering dance towards Mexico. There are numerous high vantage spots dotted along the coast that provide great places to spot whales. On calm mornings especially.

Timed to coincide with this majestic natural migration is the whale watching festival. Enjoy some fine wine and craft beers while you sit and wait for mother nature to unfold.

There are also plenty of accredited whale watching guided tours. Quality local arts and crafts will also be on display around the village. Don't forget to do a lighthouse tour. The view is spectacular. The competition to decide who makes the best "chowder" will be hotly contested by local chefs.


March 3 & 4, 2018
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Venue: Crown Hall, Mendocino, CA Price: Chowder tasting $10
